July 26 column

How would you like a gazebo like this?
Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Backyard oasis. It is about my featured local gardener for July, Randy Palmer.

Randy and his wife live on a city lot in northwest Spokane. His garden is amazing! I took a lot of photos while I visited his garden, just to give you a sense of how nice it is and also provide some inspiration. Enjoy!
