Destination: Northwest Flower and Garden Show

Northwest Flower and Garden Show, February 23-27, Washington State Trade and Convention Center.

Cedar Grove Composting, which processes all our yard waste into compost (and then sells it back to us) will have an Alice in Wonderland-themed display at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show at the Washington State Convention Center.

“Alice’s Labyrinth” 
“Then it seemed like falling into a labyrinth: we thought we were at the finish, but our way bent ‘round and we found ourselves, as it were, back at the beginning, and just as far from that which we were seeking at first.”--Socrates 

In striving for a sustainable society, we learn of the distance we still must travel. As one walks through “Alice’s Labyrinth,” one will reflect upon how individual steps will result in getting closer to true sustainability. The theme is to treasure resources, replenish the earth, and create healthy habitats.

The “Alice In Wonderland” influence in this garden includes a “Queen of Hearts” topiary, colorful mosaics, painted floors and mushrooms —to create the look and feel of what Alice saw when she peered through the looking glass. Linked by theme to the adjacent “Alice In Wonderland” garden, this creation also showcases plantings of the use of Filtrexx Garden Soxx with edible strawberries.
