  1. Wow. What a gorgeous place. I love the line of Black Mondo Grass and the pathways and the trees... just fabulous!

  2. So pretty. The first picture is my favorite.

  3. So simple and refined.

  4. Wow, that is one stunning Japanese Garden! It radiates such a stillness that just looking at your pictures makes me feel very calm. I have the impression that the design is a more modern interpretation of traditional Japanese Garden Design. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Those walkways are fantastic looking.


  6. What a beautiful and peaceful place. Your pictures are fantastic!

  7. Stunning gardens! The gate and paths are so inviting, I love the stone path with that contrasting Mondo grass. WOW.

  8. Wonderful photos of such a marvelus garden. thank yo so much for sharing! Larry

  9. What simple and elegant fencing they have! It's Japanese looking without getting cliche. Some beautiful stones/rocks, also. The lack of flower color makes the trees pop color even more. There's some great ideas here! Thanks...lovely pictures as always.

  10. Simply gorgeous photos! I've seen several posts on this place from other "Flingers." If I ever get to Seattle, the Bloedel Reserve will be at the top of my must-see list!

  11. It is a wonderfully beautiful place..I too love the black mondo grass!

  12. Beautiful! I am struck by the various materials used in the pathways...very neat and nice....also gives me some ideas!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
