Sketchy Everett Volume 14 - Sorticulture, Everett's Garden Arts Festival

Sorticulture is Everett's annual Garden Arts Festival at the stunning Legion Park on the very northern edge of Everett. Gardener Ciscoe Morris (Mr. "Ooh La La") was speaking when I rounded a corner near the Wine Garden, so I had to capture the moment! 

I volunteered at the info booth for a few hours today, and loved discovering where visitors were from.... Kirkland, Spokane, Edmonds, Ballard, down the street on Rucker. You name it! My favorite part of the festival, however, is watching the parade of vehicles departing the neighborhood. Each vehicle features an ingenious configuration of passengers, pets, plants, and oversized trellises. 

Sorticulture runs through Sunday, June 12 from 10am-4pm.
