"Welcome to the Shriver/Watson garden. You are greeted stret side with a showing of crocosmia and shasta daisies. To the right you will pass a hillside of perennials and enter a blue gate to the backyard."
This gorgeous planting by the driveway let us know that we we were entering an colorful and exuberantly plant garden.
Beautifully grown eryngium.
On the other side of the driveway is this entry garden space here used by Cheryl Lassonde's Garden in Glass Windchimes.
Moving around to the side of the house.
The path leads to the gate mentioned above.
"There, a pool and patio are is surrounded by beautiful gardens. On the south slope, one can view the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. Down the pathway, one will pass a rose trellis, honeysuckle arbor, columns, a magnolia tree, greenhouse, and a vegetable garden."
I'd never seen bottle trees arranged like this before. Striking!
A large part of the garden is on a hill behind the house which overlooks the pond and patio area and has nice views.
This is a garden full of cheerful color. I'm in love with these columns!
Such a great use of this slope behind the pond area!
"As we near the pool and patio we see an assortment of potted flowers and plants. All in all, this garden serves as a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the pleasant surroundings"
A waterfall trickles down the hill.
Gabion bench - clever!
And as Danger says, there's always an agave. Sometimes even an aloe!
View from the patio.
Tuberous begonias have it made in the shade.
I overheard one of the gardeners saying to a guest, "We do like color." I should say so and what a spectacularly colorful garden these gentlemen have created.
Thank you George and Omar for opening your garden for us all to admire!
