Bloedel Reserve, Bainbridge Island, WA

Have you heard about Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island? It is across Sound from Seattle, about a 45 minute drive from our house over the Agate Pass Bridge. It was not until seeing an ad for “the premier plant sale” and a sunny break on Saturday morning did I consider checking out this garden and sale. I heard that there are no roses in the garden but lots of other great plants. It is a gem on the island.

Nice color but unlabeled plant.

  1. I would love a Japanese garden and perhaps a kindly monk to live nearby who could come in and show me how to respect and rake the gravel as it should be done from time to time.
