A Day in Seattle

Acer palmatumIt’s not fair that this Japanese Maple in Seattle is slowly unfurling it’s soft colorful leaves while my Japanese Maples in my new hometown of Duvall, a mere 25 miles East, are still holding their buds winter-tight.  I recently moved to Duvall and now I’m having gardeners remorse.  Too far from the water! Too many deer! Not enough sun!!! Somehow I’ll have to make the best of it.  I’m looking forward to watching how the sun hits the property and considering my options for garden beds.  ‘Let’s not be hasty’ I keep telling myself, I want to get this right. Before I start planting and digging I need time to plan.  So while my plants are in a holding pattern here in Duvall, I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden at the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle today. Here is a little plant happiness:

  1. Congratulations on the move. When you become more familiar with the subtleties of your micro-climate, I have faith that you will garden to meet the new challenges.
