Through Sunday, Jan. 26: Tacoma Home and Garden Show

Tacoma Dome

By Bobble Tiki on January 20, 2014

The annual Tacoma Home and Garden Show opens Thursday and runs through Sunday at the Tacoma Dome. Everything Bobble Tiki wants to know or see in the garden world will be on display. The huge event features the first-ever "$25,000 Backyard Makeover" contest, award-winning garden writer and designer Don Engebretson, aka "The Renegade Gardener," will be in the house Friday and Saturday, as will local garden experts Ciscoe Morris, Marianne Binetti, Pete Lisoskie of KIRO Radio's "Home Matters," and many others sharing tips and trends in daily seminars. Show attendees can get a jump on spring gardening projects with inspiration from local vendors, headlined by a feature garden created by Olympic Landscape, and the popular plant sale staged by Olympia's Bark & Garden Center. Bobble Tiki would like to end with his usual joke, but unfortunately the only joke Bobble Tiki knows about flowers is a filthy one attributed to orchids and Tennessee Williams, which Bobble Tiki would never, ever repeat.
