Oh Grow Up and Thanks, John
You know those charming but sturdy plant supports we saw in John Longres’ garden at this week’s docent meeting? I’m talking about the rustic/rusted wrought iron “holder uppers” several docents asked about and coveted.

John told us they were purchased from a friend who is in the garden ornament business. In case you can't wait until the next spring's Sorticulture garden art event in Everett to look for them, John has supplied us with contact information for the business – which has the clever name of "Oh Grow Up. Turns out his friend has sold it to Mike & Liz Neish | 503.577.0656 | firstname.lastname@example.org. You can take a peek at some examples of their garden art (all from recycled material) at the web site.

Thanks again to John and Jeff for sharing their home and garden with us. It was a spectacular setting for a summer meeting. If you missed it, I'm sorry. You can read a little bit more about it and see a couple more photos on the Dunn Gardens Facebook page.
Thank you John for the
Thank you John for the wonderful time in your garden. What a splendid place. We had a good showing of docents to discuss the new blog and share ideas for next years calendar. Judy and I will be working on it soon so if any of you have other ideas about field trips or speakers, send us an email.
Loved your garden John!
Thank you for having us. It was inspiring to see the many ways you have created a welcoming space with surprises around every corner – loved the colors, the layers in your design and of course the garden art!
