After all of those garden photos I dumped on you, my faithful readers, I took a little break this week. But we did visit more NPA Open Gardens last Saturday, this time in Bellevue.
Our first stop was at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, a return visit to see what was in bloom now. I have a bunch of photos from the border there that I might get around to posting some other time.
Our first NPA stop was the garden of Linda Rasp.
We were enjoying the lush plantings street side, and then when we descended the driveway we heard a voice saying "Well, look who's here!"
It was Peter of The Outlaw Gardener blog and Alison of Bonnie Lassie! We met Peter and Alison when they toured our garden two years ago when we had our NPA Open Garden. We got to talking and discovered we were all bloggers, so we exchanged information, and we have been blogger buddies ever since. We have run into them several times since, either in a garden or at a garden show. Alison and Peter are both officially "garden bloggers" and that's usually what they post about. As you know, I am a bit more of a "whole life" sort.
The gardener here, Linda Rasp, likes to propagate and experiment. Here you see her fruits and vegetables all in containers. That wall of tomatoes should like the heat those pots will soak up.
Tom talked shop with the gardener.
I took more photos of the pretty flowers.
