Two More Edmonds Gardens From Last Weekend

The garden of Jeanne and Bob Macdonald is rich with color, much of it from foliage. 


 Shrubs provide year round color in the front garden.

 Around the side of the house we see the mature fir trees that set the stage for the back yard.

 Mosaic pavers created by the gardener add to the color scheme. 







 Maribeth Johnson's garden is also rich with color and texture. 

 And a bit of whimsy too. 





 While she has made the front garden her own, in the back yard many plantings still exist from the the days when one of the first residents of the area built this house. 


And so ends the tour of Edmonds gardens.

  1. I love those mosaic pavers in the first garden, and the combo daybed/pergola. I'm kicking myself for missing these Edmonds gardens. It was such fun to see you and Tom this weekend in Bellevue.

  4. Quite lovely, but in my heat here I would be dragging the hose all over to keep those containers hydrated.
