How can you not be inspired by a view like this?

Woodley Garden - view across the yard
Woodley Garden - sweeping curves
And details like this?
Woodley Garden - detail of pot and wreath
Or perhaps you're needing inspiration for a new water feature. Perhaps like this?
Willis Garden - echo chamber water feature
I am very inspired by this and have plans to incorporate something like it into our garden...
Terhune garden - structure for bird house collection
You too can get inspired by images like this at this weekend's Seeding Our Future Garden Tour and Art Show in Tigard and Tualatin. I had the fortune of getting a sneak peek at the gardens this week, and you can listen to this week's show of Lelo Homemade (Friday at noon, or here online afterwards) where I interview Lisa Albert and chat about the great 8 gardens. She also tells us about the garden art fair happening Friday and Saturday.

The whole shebang is a fundraiser for The Foundation for Tigard Tualatin Schools and the gardens are chock full of inspiration and ideas. If you're seeking inspiration for your garden, whatever its size, this is a great tour.

For more information about the tour and show, visit the Seeding Our Future website.

Thanks for posting the photos and the link, lelo! I had so much fun taking you and the others around to the gardens on Tuesday.

I'm not sure who had more fun this weekend - the garden owners, the visitors or the volunteers - but I can say that we all had a great time. We couldn't have asked for a better day for garden touring and garden art shopping. Oh, yeah, you know it, a few things followed me home, just longing to find a cozy spot in my garden.

Mark this date in your calendar: Saturday, June 25, 2011. That's our tour date for next year.
