With no crew coming in on Saturday morning to continue the renovation projects, we were free to fly the coop.
We had read about the Soos creek Botanical Garden in near by Kent, which had just recently opened to the public. It seemed the perfect uncomplicated outing, paired with lunch out and with a trip to the Puyallup Farmers Market.
The Vegetable Garden
Can you find the duck in the photo below?
The Long Borders.
The long borders are backed my many varieties of trees.
There is a hardy fuchsia collection in another garden room.
A rose garden with gazebo.
Here are a few colorful photos of the Farmer's Market.
We mostly strolled, but bought a few of each of corn on the cob, blueberries, and nectarines.
The colors of the fruit match the colors in the garden, very golden, very August.
