On the Scene: Northwest Flower & Garden Show

Those of you who know me well are aware that I am an avid gardener and part-time garden designer. I recently purchased a new home this past year and with the remodel done, I am now working on installing two new gardens - one for privacy which will be drought-resistant and another for show and pleasure.

This past weekend, I attended the Northwest Flower & Garden Show at the Washington State Convention Center. It was an extraordinary experience to be surrounded by so many other gardening enthusiasts! With over an acre of show gardens, it was a busy day of exploring outdoor living, edible gardening and sustaninability. Going to garden shows provide me with inspiration and they are the perfect outlet for my creativity. You will find me browsing the nurseries now with my garden designs in hand.  

When I was in San Diego last week, I purchased three large exterior pots to place at the entrance of my new Airbnb. My son had the honor of transporting them back to Washington for me!

Fall Fun: Kitsap's Best Pumpkin Patches

There is nothing quite as beautiful as Autumn in the Pacific Northwest. The cooler weather brings spectacular views of Fall foliage throughout Kitsap county and also means it is pumpkin picking season. In honor of hay rides, corn mazes, and farm fun, I have rounded up the best pumpkin patches Kitsap County offers.

It’s time to put on a cowboy, or cowgirl hat and dust off those boots, because The Big County Fair is riding into town this month. Kitsap County Fairgrounds will host the annual Kitsap County Fair & Stampede from August 23rd to 27th where locals and visitors are encouraged to take part in the “largest interaction of residents from Kitsap county and the surrounding counties”.
