My first visit to this garden, that of Bob Hyland and Andrew Beckman, was back in 2014. I figured a couple of years gone by it would be interesting to see it again. Visiting gardens over time, and watching them mature and the inevitable changes take place, is a benefit of living in a community of generous gardeners.
The view! Mt St. Helens on the right, and off in the distance Mt Rainier, both across the Columbia River in Washington.
I could write a very opinionated (and lengthy) essay about art in the garden, and I may. But something like this, organic and placed to frame not shout — well I can appreciate it.
The house as seen from the driveway. Rather welcoming don’t you think?
I’ve walked up and around the garage now and am on the other side of the property. I do love a place to sit a spell.
Oh look! There’s another.
And a colorful hillside between the two.
Red, white and blue. After all the 4th was just a couple of days ago.
I’ve long lusted over low, wide, cement bowls like that.
