The Northwest Horticultural Society's annual Meet the Board tour was on Sunday, August 19th, 2012. Five great NHS board member gardens were open to NHS regular members to walk though and be in awe of.
This board member has an apparent love affair with coleus, among other things.
|Ophiopogon japonicus 'Nanus'|
This garden was home to many subtropical/tropical plants, including this schefflera. Not sure of the species or if it is given any protection in the winter.
|Nepenthes alata, center|
This bird netting over the patch of blueberry bushes is doing double-duty, keeping people away as well.
This "compost fence" looks like it was just recently stuffed with a bunch of yard debris. I would love to see what this looks like in a year, when the material on the bottom has decomposed. It's a cool idea, especially for smaller gardens.
I counted 12 chickens. They must take their morning omelets seriously.
And finally, a contemplative Easter Island head.
