Garden Touring, Kitsap Peninsula, Part II

Here are photos from three more gardens in the Gig Harbor and Fox Island area that we toured last weekend. This first property was a very large hillside garden stretching from a high bank view all the way down to beach access. This is the entry court!
The mature trees add amazing color to the garden.
How about this view?
The hillside is navigated by way of many sets of stone steps and pathways.
We stopped for a picnic lunch at Kopachuck State Park. Nature has it's own wonderful style of gardening.
Out on Fox Island we found this garden in a rural setting, with spacious lawns surrounded by horse pastures and a distant view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
The final garden was also hidden away on rural Fox Island. Half the fun of touring is finding these places and enjoying the scenery along the way.


  1. absolutely gorgeous, love to spend time there...

  2. These are beautiful. I think Washington must be a gardener's heaven.

  3. Oh Wow! I see that we missed seeing a lot more gorgeous places in Seattle! I guess we need to get back there again someday!

  4. What a lovely tour. I specially liked the Fox Island garden.

    Thanks for the visit. MB
