man, i bet i could put together the best garden tour guide for any out-of-towner. seriously, if you want to know the prettiest places to go to look at plants in seattle, ask me. (and, i must give props to my boy, c, who is the only reason i know about any of these places in the first place.)
saturday we took a trip up to the kruckeberg botanic garden/msk nursery for their mother's day plant sale and open house.
i mean, come on, it doesn't get much better than this. seattle brought out its most perfect spring weather--sunny-not-too-hot-blue-skies-gentle-breeze--and the light was just right filtering in through the layers upon layers of trees.
this garden is such a special place that they can even hang "art" from the trees and it feels right at home.
and omg, what is going on with these colors? i can't believe i forgot to take note of the name of this conifer.
spring ephemerals. sigh. i'd like to be a spring ephemeral.
at least i coordinated with the plants. and you know how matching is so important to me.
see, even the epimedium wants to show how much it loves the kruckeberg botanic garden!
