Bellevue Botanical Garden

Last Sunday morning we sought out another large garden where we could get in a few miles of walking while enjoying the beauty of  a well tended public garden. We relied on an old favorite, the Bellevue Botanical Garden. 

From the cool wind sculpture at the entrance, to the "meadow", the massive perennial border, the pond, rhododendron and fern garden, to the tranquil Yao Garden, it was a great way to spend an hour and a half. 

Here is your tour, without commentary.


 Ooops.










































From the Yao Garden we took one of the shorter trails through the natural woodland that is a large part of this preserve before ending our walk.  Once again the BBG did not disappoint.

  1. What a wonderful way to exercise your body, mind and eyes. I am a huge foliage fan and to see so much with color and various shadings was a treat.
