For our readers in the Portland area, I hope you’ll consider joining us as we have a good time with our neighbors at the annual Fremont Fest coming up tomorrow, Saturday, August 2nd.
Last year the Bloomtown crew had a great time at Fremont Fest. As you may recall, we even had miniature horses thanks to Merle (see photos and my post from last year’s event here). So we’re definitely looking forward to this year’s daylong celebration.
We’re even going to have a drawing for a couple of extra special giveaways. Grand prize will be a two-hour garden consultation with me in the winner’s garden. Our first prize will be a “Garden in a Box” – a tray of plants personally selected by me to be culturally compatible and will help the winner create a garden scene that is rich with foliage, texture, and color.
To be eligible for these great prizes, all you have to do is visit Bloomtown Nursery on Saturday, August 2nd between 9 am and 5 pm and fill out an entry form. We’ll draw two lucky winners at the end of the day.
Be sure to check out all the great Fremont Fest events; a parade at 10 am; music on multiple stages throughout the day; carriage rides along Fremont; art; sidewalk sales; and more …
We’ll have some sale items at the nursery – for starters, we’ll be offering significant savings on tropicals such as canna, ginger, and bananas and we’ll have some other items on sale as well.
Oh, and be sure to visit Erin at our “satellite” sales table in the parking lot at The Arrangement, across from the hardware store.
Hope to see you!
