Spring Beauty

As we say here in western Washington, on a clear day you can see "the mountain". And such a day it was as we traveled to Enumclaw, WA to visit the Anderson Rhodendron Garden. This is a private garden, open only on Sundays in May. We heard about it from a friend who recently went there with her Red Hat group. She said,"You just have to see it." So we did, and she was right!
The garden was started about 30 years ago by the current owner's father. He planted it as a private garden, but had a small nursery business on the side. Now it is maintained as a suburban yard, but it is shared with the public when it is in it's glorious spring bloom.
To know more about it or to see more photos, Google Anderson Garden, Enumclaw, WA.
