This is the 14th time that the famous Lakewold Gardens invite you to visit their popular Beautiful Tables Showcase!
It is held on October 25-28, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wagner House.
Yesterday was the first day, and I treated myself to this festive display of 32 tables decorated
by amateur and professional designers.
I don't want to spoil your visit, so I'll just show several glimpses of the display.
If you live in the state of Washington and have a free weekend, you might want to attend this event, get ideas for upcoming holidays and also stroll through the Gardens.
Following are several pictures of the October Gardens. With most of the flowers gone, the Garden's bones are especially prominent. This is the perfect time to see, admire and appreciate what Thomas Church, the great American garden designer, and Eulalie Wagner created in this corner of Lakewood, WA.
Entrance fee for the Beautiful Tables Showcase: $7 Lakewold Member, $12 Non-Member

There is one more incentive to visit the Gardens right now - During the Beautiful Tables Showcase, all memberships are offered at 50% off.
I invite you to join me in touring one of the best Japanese maple nurseries in the state of Washington, Yang's Nursery. Together with other plants, maples turn this place into an absolutely magnificent garden, which pleases eyes and awakes your emotions. Right now, it's a great time to visit the nursery.
