More jonesing for spring

Today we went to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show and looked at pretty landscaping.

They even had a hobbit hole, and all the plants were native to New Zeland:

There were shiny things:

They had an activity for the kids, where they had to fnd a coconut hidden in every one of the 25 garden displays.

Some were easily spotted.

Others were camouflaged:

Upon completion of the hunt, the kids were presented with sunflower seedlings.  We're already plotting where they should be planted.

There were several displays I could happily imagine myself relaxing in:

And there was whimsy for all different kinds of folks:

Afterwards, there was tasty brunch at Dahlia Lounge, and now it's cuddle time.
