Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Happy Independence Day!

Here are some floral fireworks from the Gig Harbor Farmers' Market grown by  independent family-owned local growers.



 Happy Fourth of July to my friends in the U.S.







 The Rose is from Raft Island Roses in Gig Harbor; all the other flowers are from Fresh Flower Farm in Kent.

  8. Beautiful! Our farmers markets here don't sell flowers. I'm convinced the only plants VA grows are wine grapes, petunias, and boxwoods. When I get to Portland next week, I may never leave.
