This sounds wonderful. I did spend many years going to Woodinville to Molbaks nursery IT is awesome. But after my garden was pretty set I switched to Sky Nursery here. Now it sounds pretty nice to spend the day in Woodinville and eat and drink and taste test and buy lots of plants... I will be going there again this spring.

Time to get out a look around a bit. Of course Seattle Down town is out for me now...
