Many of the beds around the park were bedded out with this hot colortcombination bedded out. Not visible in this picture but present in many of the beds was dark purple coleus as well. The banners fit right in and along with the bright beds set the mood for the day.
Speaking of floral combinations, Ia's garden had lots of sweet bouquets.
The Tarantellas performed as they roved.
Posing on a giant chair for a picture.
Concrete castings from Forest Green Enterprises who also do mail order.
Copper work by Cowdawg Creations with cool verdigris, copper's answer to rust.
Barbara Sanderson's fiddlesticks are faves of mine and I've collected a few over the years.
Barbara has decided, after fifteen years of building Glass Gardens Northwest, to sell her business and move on to other adventures. Read more about the new owners and new possibilities at GGN here.
I loved Joe Clifton's ladies.
Bedrock Industries, another long-time favorite of mine.
Loving head planters, this one from Madrugada Pottery was a temptation. Joe? Joe Stalin? Is that you? OMG, you look faaaabulous for being 137 years old. (Oh please, someone's had serious work done)
Carol's Dragonfly Rocks are nicely done.
So much fun!
Dehanna Jones/Totally Blown Glassworks utilizes some gorgeous color combinations. Is the blow up kiddie pool used as a display for glass floats a hoot or what?
Albe Rustics brilliant banners and twig furniture make any event a festival!
You may remember seeing similar work at Dragonfly Gardens. The reason is that Mark Priest, Tecweld Metal Art displayed and sold his work there. Let's see, a cactus, and agave,
and a Lila. Is Danger around here somewhere?
Look at all of those tiny pieces and artful shading. Oh the patience!
Notice that even the inside of the upper part of the pot is done. Don't think I'd put a plant in this, would you?
Stay tuned for more fun from Everett! Happy Solstice! The days start getting shorter again.
