Last Sunday, Mother's Day, Tom and I visited NPA Open Gardens in the stately Ravena park neighborhood of Seattle. What a treat it was to wander from one garden to the next along this lovely street.
There is lots of beautiful stonework in these front gardens, some of it newly done in the old style, much of it vintage.
I loved how these dark tulips punctuated this chartreuse hosta.
Intriguing paths and arches lead to tiny back yards.
NPA Members, sign in here, and have a cookie.
In small gardens you have to choose your priorities. Here it was vegetables.
One front garden blends in with the next.
This was the first home on the street to open, several years ago. It sits at the end of the street, adjoining Ravena Park, so it has a much bigger side yard.
Today, Sunday, we will soon set off to visit more NPA Open Gardens. There will be more posts, but I don't know when. We have several days of sunshine coming up, and WARM temps, so I may not be parking myself in from of my desktop computer, editing photos.
Until we meet again, enjoy each day, as spring erupts.
