Gardening in the Pacific Northwest (Vancouver, Washington)
We rarely go to Portland anymore because the traffic and parking is so horrendous but we did drive over to visit Little Baja earlier this week. I had been a few times in the past but Michael had never been and he expressed interest after seeing it advertised on Garden Time every week. If you are looking for pots (terracotta or concrete), statuary, fountains, etc., they have it!
We didn't expect to buy anything but of course we did. I am getting ready to take out the vegetable garden and replace it with a patio and courtyard area. I wanted to add a water feature in that area and we came across a large bowl (the man at the store called it a "bonsai bowl") and it was close to what I was envisioning. We did not buy the fish, which we separate, but Michael liked them. Me, not so much.
I saw lots of other great items as well, like these outdoor fireplaces and grills -
I am a sucker for statuary but have so far controlled myself in the new garden.
