I love color and I love whimsey.  I love handmade wooden items and I love glass.  I love my family and I love Legion Park.  So I was pretty happy yesterday when Tom and I took Dad and Mom to Everett to the last couple of hours of the Sorticulture Garden Art Festival at Everett's Legion Park.

This was Sorticulture's 14th year.  With over 100 vendors, offering everything from exotic outdoor succulents to birdhouses to water features, there was plenty to inspire gardeners as they dreamed about creating their own outdoor environment.

Here are a few photos of the things that caught my eye:

A garden of miniatures 

Table and chairs made from old wine barrels 

Shovel birds, turtles and puppies
made from recycled metal

I'm envious that you got to Sorticulture. I'd hoped to take my mom, but things were wacky. Oh well. I went once while we lived in Marysville, and I'm sure it's grown by now.
