Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

The Garden of Scott Satterthwaite & Patricia Warren

You may recall visiting this garden on the fall color tour in October. The gardens on that tour were opened this spring for the Northwest Perennial Alliance.  What a treat to see the garden in two seasons and this time to meet Scott and Patricia!

"Scott and Patricia have a mature Northwest garden that has been evolving for 28 years.  The front yard is stone terraced and features Japanese maples, dogwoods, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, salvia, and hinoki cypress, ferns and ground covers.




"The expansive side yard is surrounded by mature coral bark maples, mountain hemlocks, hydrangea trees, rhododendrons, along with many varieties of ferns and ground covers.  A miniature Japanese village adds a note of whimsy."





"The small back yard is a terrace dotted with roses, eeonies, dahlias, climbing hydrangea, and clematis."

"A private courtyard and shade garden is accessed by several stone steps."

"Beyond the backyard, one views a large, low maintenance slope sprinkled with heather, Japanese maples and dogwood that is edged with smoke trees and rhododendrons."
It must be a delight to live in a neighborhood with so many passionate and delightful gardeners! Thanks, Scott and Patricia for opening your garden for our enjoyment!

  1. You've made my day! Those Jp. maples with big twisting trunks are a dream to imagine growing here. I love that flowers were not the dominant feature of the garden and yet so much color and texture.
