Mark your calenders and make your plans! While there are a number of shows and events that will be happening in the upcoming weeks, my time is limited so I tend to hone in on the Yard, Garden and Patio Show in Portland and the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle.
The Northwest Flower and Garden Show takes place February 8th through the 12th at the Seattle Convention Center. All the info you'll need can be found on their website.
Next up on my roster will be Portland Yard, Garden and Patio Show. It takes place February 17 through the 19th at the Convention Center in Portland. All you need to know can be found here.
If I happen to have any show stamina left I'll consider going to the Portland Home and Garden Show the following weekend at the Expo Center. After two shows in quick succession, I usually have plenty of new ideas and inspirations to process so most years I tend to peter out and not make it to this one.
To whet your appetite, here's some photos of last year's shows:
