On Sunday we visited six gardens in the Edmonds area, north of Seattle. We have been to the Neal garden before, but it is one of our favorites and we love having the opportunity to see it again.
Kathleen describes herself as a "plant and garden art fanatic". It shows in her garden.
The pretty potting bench
About half of the back yard is taken up by the large pond and its lush surround.
Kathleen loves color and handles it very artistically.
Much of the garden art she has created herself.
She didn't know the name of this hosta, but it is maybe the most beautiful one I have ever seen.
I had to ask what this lovely red-flowered shrub was - spice bush.
The shed is made of hand-hewn lumber, and the little patio in made of leaf-patterend pavers that the Neals created.
Lettuce growing in protective collars.
