We have been having the most lovely summer weather. Gardens are blooming and still green, although that might not last long, given the rainless forecast into the future.
Today we were back on the Kipsap Peninsula, touring NPA Open Gardens in the Gig Harbor area.
First up was the McFerran garden, which I would sum up as green and groomed and with lovely places to linger.
We were surprised to see Tom's sister Jan pull up right behind us when we arrived. We knew she would be visiting a garden as part of her work as an organizer of the annual Gig Harbor Garden Tour, but we didn't know it was the same one we were going to.
I always like to see how gardeners stage their entrance. This one was very welcoming.
This moon gate is wonderful and the lint on my lens gives it an ethereal quality. :-( I cleaned it off.
The view from the deck is into the green belt,
and out over the garden below.

I really liked the use of fencing to set off seating areas.
The command center of the garden. It was also so very tidy and interestingly adorned.
This sweet little shed was the gardener's office.
And there were cookies and lemonade too!
