As much as we've all loved these subtly beautiful photos of our winter gardens lately, don't you think it's time for some tropical medicine? Today's photos are from Tia Scarce out in Edmonds, Washington (see her former garden HERE and HERE), but the photos are from sunny Hawaii! Tia says, "Does anyone need some color inspiration in the middle of winter? I recently visited Hawaii for the first time and took way too many plant pictures. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of landscapes and experiences available there, from beach to mountaintop, arid to tropical. Most of these photos were taken at Kula Botanical Garden in the “upcountry” part of Maui. I wish I had more wide shots but it was like being in the jungle without much chance for that long view. I’ve no idea what most of these are but identified what I do know." Aaaaahhhhhhhh…..so nice, Tia. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And we'll be thanking Tia for two more days…..she sent in lots of photos!!

Come and meet up at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show this year!
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…), and 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:
Glenda Curdy (Nurserynotnordstrom)
May Kald (GrannyMay) – tentative
Catherine Campbell (CrannyCC) – tentative
Jeanne Cronce (Greengenes)
Chris Niblack (ChrisSeattle)
Kielian DeWitt (Annek)
Linda Skyler (Meelianthus)
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…
