These were a few of my favorite things. Everything from the Floramagoria garden (which I've toured before) was awesome. This is a true plant lover's garden and they have some genius hardscaping, to boot. Large bamboo culms had been painted and stuck in the ground, giving this area height and color without blocking the view. You can purchase bamboo culms of this size at Bamboo Craftsman, if you want to recreate this.
A brilliant way to keep gravel from your paths from ending up where it shouldn't be.
Whismy. Such good whimsy.
A spectacular sun shade from the Cedar Mill garden.
I loved this pathway.
I saw Agave 'Blue Glow' for the first time at the Clackamas County Master Gardener's Fair and ever since I have noticed it everywhere. I must have one. This was at the Pequeño Paraiso garden.
I loved these lights. Unobtrusive and beautiful.
This was across the street from one of the tours but it cracked me up.
I loved everything about this water feature from the Plant Passion garden.
And there's that Blue Glow again!
The tour is this Saturday, June 22nd from 10am to 4pm. You can buy tickets from their website or the day of the tour from Garden Fever, Drake's 7 Dees, and Cornell Farms.
