Powellswood Garden

Some of the members of our garden group met this morning to tour Powellswood, a private garden in Federal Way that is sometimes open to the public. Tom and I had been here many years ago, when the garden was new, and we were excited to see how it had developed.

We were not disappointed.

The weather was a bit disappointing, as it rained pretty much the whole time we were there, but except for keeping my camera dry, it was good light for photography.  

I have a lot of lovely photos, and it is hard to choose between them, so get ready for a bunch!


 Walking from the parking area, you can see this is something special.










Parsley and pansies as bedding plants.
 There are many wonderful plant combinations in this border.  I loved the Colorful barberry.
















On to the Spring Garden, under the cherry trees.
