I went in hoping to find something bright and a little unusual. Not a problem here! Have you ever seen a furry Heliconia? I hadn’t.
What about Lipstick pod?
This Celosia is bright enough to break my camera lens.

I love Monkey Tails!
The market I was visiting, New Seasons, is a locally owned smaller version of Whole Foods. In addition to an always outstanding floral selection they (the Concordia and Arbor Lodge stores at least) currently have a marvelous selection of little succulents.
I am addicted to little succulents.
Back outside it looks like spring is here! The sunny skies and warm (relatively speaking) temperatures the day of my visit have me feeling it too. Too bad the weather people are calling for a snow/ice event later this week. Kind of puts a damper on my spring fever.
Oh but that reminds me...what comes after spring? Summer! And what's happening this summer?
The 2011 Garden Bloggers meet-up...in Seattle! How exciting is that, so close to Portland! Learn more about it on the official website, and if you're going, I'll see you there!
