I spend a lot of time in garden centers, visiting gardens, and reading and thinking about plants. This week I was at the Farwest Show here in Portland, happily immersed in aisle after aisle of plants—everything from the tried-and-true-standbys to sneak peaks at plants we'll be seeing next season in our local garden centers.
