Showing off for the big show

Exhibitors make final preparations Tuesday at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle for the 2013 Northwest Flower & Garden Show, which opens Wednesday and runs through Sunday. Getting lost in her arrangement is Cynthia Salazar, of Capitol Florist, who rushes to meet the high noon deadline, which is appropriate because the theme is "The Silver Screen Takes Root...Gardens go Hollywood." When Salazar was asked how her buxom arrangement related to Hollywood she said, "Can't you tell? Mae West."

Popping out of a Hobbit Hole is Rhonda Bush, one of four designers who went to see the movie "The Hobbit" for inspiration. The official title of the Washington Park Arboretum Arboretum Foundation exhibit is "A Hobbit's New Zealand Garden-- Middle-Earth Meets the Arboretum's New Eco-Geographic Forest."
