Yard garden and patio Show 2008

I often find February to be a long dreary month. To cheer myself up I look for signs of spring coming. A nice dry way to look for signs of spring is at garden shows. The Yard, Garden and Patio show starts Friday February 15, 2008 and runs until Sunday February 17, 2008. The show is at the Oregon convention center. 13 local wineries will be there sampling their wines. Find out what wines go with your plants. What a nice thought, a glass of wine by the pool relaxing in the evening. That is a few months off, until then I can pick out new patio furniture, buy plants that I don’t have room for, and plan an outdoor kitchen that won’t fit in my yard. Dreaming what fun.

Admission is $11. $2 off discount tickets are available at the web site under tickets. The show will run from 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Sunday. Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Portland. On the Max line.

I went to the show. It has more venders and is bigger than years past. It was exciting to see all the specialty nurseries like raintree and one world.
