Well, the contractor was done by noon, and for the first time all week I was well rested. What to do? Hop in the car and zip into Seattle to the show, of course. Which is what I did. I was only going to have the afternoon to check everything out, so it was a bit of a whirlwind.
The first thing I did when I got into the show was go to the Small Space Showcase on the Skybridge. Go here to find out exactly what the Small Space Showcase is. I often find these small quirky container gardens to be more interesting and full of take-home ideas than the big fancy displays. You should read The Outlaw Gardener's post about them here.
Anyway, here are some vignettes from the Small Space Showcase gardens. I zipped through them at lightning speed, so I neglected to take overall photos of each of them.

|These vases are such a great shape!|
|Love the plant in the apron pocket|
|This was a striking display. Isn't that a great pot?|
|I love these pyramidal containers too|

I'm sure you're wondering about the title of my post -- How to Lasso a Yucca rostrata. Well, did you see it? In the picture above.
Maybe it's more like a garrotte.
I guess those suckers are top-heavy.
