Arboretum Foundation Plant Sale

I discovered the Arboretum Foundation's annual Spring Plant Sale last weekend. It's housed over at Magnuson Park in the same spot as the semi-regular Friends of the Library book sales. The plant sale was assuredly the largest one in the area, and (as the pics show) featured dozens of independent dealers and thousands of plants. I showed up on the first day (Saturday) with about five minutes to spare and was positioned behind the first couple of hundred folks. I only had one plant on my list: Dicentra 'Burning Hearts'. Fortunately, I found the only dealer on the site with the plant and managed to grab the last one. Mission accomplished!
