A Stop at DIG

It was a delight visiting the DIG nursery on Vashon Island during the NPA Open Garden Tour in June.
I felt like I was  in a big house without a roof  but with  a floor, 'furniture', room dividers and chandeliers.  
The  floor is gravel with  grass, groundcovers and succulents growing through. 
The ravens, sheep and other creatures watch the customers. 
The huge flowering baskets compete with several chandeliers.  
And oh, of course, the plants, plants, plants!
The place is cozy and welcoming. Here are several pictures:

Sophie looked like the garden's muse:

I bet she has the best dog house ever:

One visit is not enough as you will want to return.

  1. Oh my goodness, what a treat for the senses....I feel like I got to visit there in person, thank you. It's beautiful, I miss those rare, unusual, unique, and stunning kinds of things. It's definitely a different climate up here but I feel like I've just come back from a great shopping trip. I would love that crow bird bath.


  2. Wow, what a fantastic place. I love those ravens on balls sculptures. And that one hanging thing of white and clear balls inspired me.

    Thanks for sharing ~ FlowerLady

  3. Oh, man....would I be in trouble there!
    Looks like a great garden place.

  4. This is one of the most delightful nurseries I have ever seen, it must be a joy to go there and see the dog sleeping under the blanket, while there is the most beautiful dog house with a real roog garden.

  5. I see lots of accessories I would have a hard time resisting!

  6. Lucky Sophie! Now that place is just my style! It looks welcoming, beautiful, quirky, stylish, and fun all at the same time!

  7. Got a couple of ideas for my own garden --- I have planted an old birdbath with moss and succulents, and now I want to add a grass-like plant for height, as seen in the rusty birdbath here. Also, like the way the gravel paths are planted. Of course, if I was really at this beautiful place, I would leave with much more than just ideas! P. x

  8. I wish there were a place like this near me Tatyana. I would be a frequent customer for sure. So many cool things. Love it!

  9. It is a beautiful place to shop for the garden. I love their imagination in using repurposed items so beautifully.

  10. Oh my, that looks like garden ornament heaven!! What a place! It's probably good I don't live close to such a nursery - my bank account would suffer!

  11. Dear Tatyana! Thank you for that post! Great pictures - one shot, thousands of ideas! Thank you for sharing.
    And: Your garden is absolutely fascinating! Wonderful!!! So much beauty in there and so much love and work! I don't know what I love more, the frog playing chess with the flowers or your cute sleeping dog! I think - as a dog person - I go for the dog!
    All my best from Austria and a happy happy week

  12. Oh Tatyana, Dig is one of my favorite nurseries (aren't they all?) I've been shopping there for years and love Vashon Island, the nurseries and the people. Seeing your post made me feel like I'd taken a trip to a special place. Thank you!

  13. What a place. I loved every photo and wanted just about everything. That digiplexis is really outstanding and the white/rust birdbath. I bet you had a blast here.


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
