On Day 2 of the Seattle Garden Bloggers' Fling, after visiting the private Epping and Lane gardens, it was time to visit a public garden, the Bellevue Botanical Garden.
The Bellevue Botanical Garden is ginormous -- 53 acres! -- and we had an hour. I didn't make it to many areas, but I did see these.
Northwest Perennial Alliance Border
Alpine Rock Garden
Shorts Ground Cover Garden
I shot this Ancanthus mollis on the way out, as I hustled to the shuttle. Beautiful! I'm sorry I missed the meadow and discovery gardens, but it was off to the next stop.
Next post will involve a detour...
