Today's photos are from Tia Scarce, who says, "These photos are from my Kirkland, Washington, garden. It was eight years in the making. My goal was to create a garden that can withstand our annual dry period without any supplemental water. Pesticide-free, only the lawn got an occasional hit with organic fertilizer. I mulched every three years or so with a rich compost. We recently sold it, opting instead for a smaller, sunnier, easier to maintain property." Oh, Tia, I don't think I could have given this house or garden up! But I can't wait to see what you do with your NEW property… ***Tia sent in so many great shot's that we'll be spending tomorrow in her garden, too! Today leaned more toward the hardscape, while tomorrow will feature some of her stunning plant combos. Stay tuned!***

Hey all! I and a bunch of the other FG editors will be at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show again this year, and I'm scheduled to give another GPOD talk! (A few of you will be getting emails in the next two weeks as I put together the slideshow…) A number of people have emailed to say that they'll be at the show, and that they'd love to meet up with a bunch of fellow GPODers!
The RSVPs so far:
Nurserynotnordstrom (Glendy Curdy)
GrannyMay (May Kald) – tentative
CrannyCC (Catherine Campbell)
Greengenes (Jeanne Cronce)
So…who else is going to be there?? Let us all know in the comments, and we can start planning an outing! Perhaps after-dinner drinks one night at the bar at the Sheraton? I'll repeat this announcement for the next week or so, at least, and keep a running list of who's coming….enticement for even more people to come. Oh, and when you comment to say you'll be there, give us your real name so that I can plan name tags that include both that and your screen name…
