Sumer Color Redux

Happy early summer.  Here’s a few photos I pulled up from a garden I installed about 7 years ago (while with Serenity Garden Design).  Love love love the colors.

Shop Field Trip


This week I’ll be in the shop on Thursday and then closed on Friday and Saturday for the Junk Salvation show at the Puyallup Fair grounds.  Sneak peek tickets for Friday night are $20 pre-sale (with this link) for a 6pm to 9pm show and then Saturday morning, tickets are $7 at the door and we’ll be there from 9am to 4pm.  Oh, and free parking in the green lot!

The Urban Gardener, that’s me, will be in barn booth #22 with my collection of garden ornaments and vintage awesomeness.

Hope to see you there.
