Ravenna Gardens, it's been awhile...
It had been a long while since I'd visited Ravenna Gardens. Hell, it'd been along awhile since I'd been to Seattle at all, how is it that I've only been managing once a year trips? I used to live there for goodness sake. I have friends there and it's only a 3 hour drive (and that includes a bathroom break!). So sad...I need to do better.
I did finally manage a visit weekend before last, and took the time to enjoy all the beauty this place has to offer.
This time of year Ravenna Gardens is the Ornamental Cabbage and Kale center of the universe. Just you wait...
This was a good sized Yucca rostrata, I didn't see a price, but then again I didn't hoist it out of the container it was sitting in.
And silly metal garden art balls too! (to grow vines on, of course)
Hmmm, ornamental and edible!
Why not tuck a pumpkin in a container?
Okay steady yourself. Let the ornamental C&K photos begin...(they're so good!)...
Wait, this one is the real deal (edible, not ornamental).
It's not every plant store that can boast it's own selection of plants from Dan Hinkley's personal nursery.
Interesting things were also going on inside the shop.
I really wanted these glasses. Need? No. Want? Yes.
Tillandsia and container heaven!
Yes please, I'll take those containers with the long legs.
Ha! Not real. Fun though, very fun.
And speaking of fun.
