Put this on your calendar - the Garden Bloggers Bazaar!

Summer fills up fast for a gardener. There are garden tours to go on, nurseries to shop at and plant sales to attend, not to mention working in one's own garden with the renewed energy that comes from the warmer, drier days.

Well, with all the things already on your garden calender, here's one more event I'd like to urge you to consider: the Portland-area Garden Bloggers Bazaar!

The Garden Bloggers Bazaar is the brainchild of our own Danger Garden, mistress of all things pointy, so chances are good there will be a few spiky plants for sale. Seedlings and plant divisions from other Portland-area garden bloggers will entice you to try something different in your garden.

And if you need a pot for your new plants, gently used containers will be available, too. For example, these dark brown pots are great, but they have never been quite the right look for the front porch of my mid-century ranch: off to a new home with them!

Also included will be pre-owned garden accessories, tools and even furniture. Word on the street is there will even be hand-crafted, leaf and nature-themed jewelry from Cascadia Studios, the Etsy shop of  Jenni, The Rainy Day Gardener.

Here's the date: Saturday, June 13, from 9AM to 2PM (you know - gardener's hours!)
Here's the place: the Union Bank parking lot at the corner of NE Fremont and 24th, right across the street from Garden Fever.

I'm looking forward to the fun, and hope to see some of you there - there will be garden bargains galore at the Garden Bloggers Bazaar!


  1. Gonna be fun! (thanks for the reminder that I need to start gathering things)

  2. Good for you, getting the ball rolling. See you there...and maybe at the ANLD pre-tour?

  3. So excited! Honestly..I can't wait to shop all of your used pots & planters!!

  4. Sounds like fun and a great idea!


Thank you in advance for jumping through the annoying but necessary word verification hoop to leave your thoughts!
