Spring is in the air — let’s enjoy the flowers!  Our first stop will be at the Orchard’s Nursery in Stanwood.  Purchase flowers or plants for your garden or patio pots.  The nursery offers several workshops:  The fairy garden class is around $30 and includes all materials - plants, pot, soil, and decor items (small statues of fairies, etc.)  A Living Wreath workshop is also available. If you bring a pot, or purchase one at the nursery, the staff will help you pick out the plants for it.  Lunch will be on your own in La Conner.  Visit one of their great restaurants which include: Seeds, Calico Cupboard, La Conner Brewery or COA Mexican.  The choice is yours.  After lunch we will stop at Christenson’s Nursery for more plants or to enjoy the Old Schoolhouse and flowers.  A stop at Azusa Nursery on the way back will complete our spring-time fling!
NOTE: If you plan to take a class, please let me know when I call you one week in advance of this trip.

The New Market-Front Expansion of Pike Place Market opened on June 29, 2017. Here is our opportunity to visit this new section. This project started in 2011 on the land near the waterfront of Pike Place Market.  This piece of property was first developed in the 1920’s and, after a fire, was turned into a parking lot.  Now it is the home of the $74 million expansion of the Market.  It houses 30,000 square feet of open public space, including a plaza and viewing deck that captures the Olympics, Mount Rainier and Puget Sound. Four new artisan vendors - Old Stove Brewing Co., Jarr & Co., Honest Biscuits and indi chocolate will produce, on-site, in 12,000 sq. ft. of production space.  Old Stove Brewery will have a mobile canning line running.  Come and join us for a new adventure in Seattle.  Two drop off sites are available:  Pike’s Market and Westlake Shopping Center.
