From the NPA Open Garden book, "A Northwest pleasure garden tucked in a Federal Way neighborhood, the three acres of Powelswood are nestled against another thirty-five acres of native successional forest. The forward-looking garden harmoniously blends luxurious foliage color and the powerful lines of defining hedges against the backdrop of its native trees. It is English in inspiration, with distinct garden rooms, that range from woodland to sub-tropical in feel, featuring more than a thousand varieties of trees, shrubs and perennials."
With that description, enjoy the tour.
Back to where we started, a cool, shady place to rest a bit before getting into a hot car for the drive home.
Three wonderful gardens on July 14th, another great Saturday of NPA garden touring.
