Lawn & Garden Glory
Something different. That's what Peggy Fleerman was after Sunday morning. Something colorful, yet with a tasteful flair that would add something whimsical to her yard.
"That's why I'm here," she said. "You can find all types of stuff for your yard here every year."
Fleerman wasn't alone. Thousands took advantage of perfect weather over the weekend to attend this year's Spring Garden Fair at the Clackamas County Event Center in Canby.
The flowers, plants, classes and more that the fair offers drew them in and wagons full of yard and garden goodies followed them out.
Fleerman, who "lives closer to Molalla than Canby," said she is a regular.
"I love it and look forward to this event every year," she said. "For me, this is the start of my lawn and garden season, such as it is. I admit, I'm not an avid or intense gardener, but I like to be involved with it."
And she, like so many who were on hand Sunday, were hoping to find just that right item, plant or tidbit of information to transform their yard into something extra.
