We've rolled into a New Year, one I hope of promise and joy and prosperity, and a really green garden for all of you! And I can help!

Click on the catalog link and find your favorite color glass (or your lover's favorite color), and get an early jump on a green garden or yard.
Fall is in the air, along with plenty of rain interspersed by some still-beautiful days. Not much watering needs to be done as Momma Nature is doing juuust fine.
But, I've just picked up some really beautiful new 6" glass globes, and will have them on the website very soon. There're glorious greens, deep blues, rich reds and more that are colorful and of course, functional!
The holidays are only a short while away, and these sprinklers can make a great and very special gift to the gardener in your life. Check 'em out on the Catalog page.
My summer season is wrapping up this weekend, where I'll be at Mercer Island's Summer Celebration, part of their annual Seafair events. There'll be a parade, food booths, blow-up rides and other kids activities, and a whole street of art and craft vendors, including --- Hoppy's!
I've several new glass colors, so come on by, and enjoy a wonderful day!
This weekend, the Duvall Arts Foundation is holding their annual Art In Bloom, at Kokopelli Gardens. This is a fundraiser to support the arts in Duvall. Friday has a gala event with live music, food and wine, and entertainment. Friday and Saturday the gardens are open to the public. All three days you walk through the gardens in which over 30 artists have installed their garden art - ceramics, glass, wood, cement, metal - you name it. All of it is available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the foundation. More information and a link is on the Events page.
Looking for a nice, intimate garden event? Hoppy's is participating in the PNA Garden Party June 1st, 9 - 1. This is a show where you can bring your extra plants to trade or buy more, buy some stunning garden art from local artists, get your gardening questions answered and have fun with other garden enthusiasts. 6532 Phinney Ave. N, behind the Blue Building. Plant exchange/sale, garden art sale, Master Gardeners, Master Composters and more. Proceeds benefit the Phinney Neighborhood Association. see http://www.phinneycenter.org/g
New year, new look! Well, OK, it IS 5 months into 2013, but better now then never. It took beating a perfectionist streak in me to get started, and then finished, to launch this thing.
I'm happy with it. There's lots of little tweaks I want to do, but if I waited to get them done before launching, well, you'd still be looking at the old web site. I'll be adding more images, more video in the coming weeks. Maybe a couple of new pages, too.
In the meantime let me know what you like about it. I'm open to ideas. I'm proud, but not too proud to ignore a good idea.
Thanks for dropping by.
