Seen in Seattle

As we 74 garden bloggers have toured Seattle we have visited private gardens, public gardens, and semi-public gardens to admire and learn about plants and Seattle’s history. Here is a mock orange at the Dunn Gardens.

All kinds of lavender everywhere.

Bicyclists on their own path.

Fabulous fruits at the Farmer’s Market. Cherries, peaches, all kinds of berries – vegetables, too.

Magnificent trees, towering.

Potted plants everywhere, in the gardens and on the street.

Fountains in the Mall where kids can play.

AND roses, and more roses. This in one variety growing in the enormous beds arranged around a beautiful big fountain at the University of Washington.

You will see lots more about Seattle’s gardens, and the clever ideas people have to add interest and convenience to their gardens. Stay tuned.

    I’m looking forward to your posts, Pat. Seattle just wasn’t in the budget for me this year. I’ll have to live vicariously. Any word on where next year’s meet-up will be?

  2. Hi Pat! Wonderful to meet you in Seattle – you have a great “roundup” of the trip through your photos here. I am still daydreaming about those trees out in the PNW. Looking forward to seeing more photos soon!

    It looks like a really beautiful city in which to live. I especially love all those plants on the fence, and those turtles and frogs!!

    What a wonderful time you must have had! Everything looks lovely; I love the frog fountain–looks like so much fun for the kids. I’ve never been to Seattle, but I’ve visited youngest Daughter in Portland several times, so I know that the roses in the Pacific Northwest are gorgeous! Like Mary, I’m going to enjoy this Fling vicariously, but am definitely planning ahead for next year’s. Hope we can meet up then.

  5. It was wonderful to see you again, Pat. You’ve really captured & encapsulated the Seattle experience (well, except for the mowers at Bloedel ;^} ).
