Thanks for making Bainbridge In Bloom 2017 a success!
The Bainbridge In Bloom Garden Tour, a perennial favorite of Northwest home and garden enthusiasts, returned for its 29th year last weekend, June 3 & 4, on Bainbridge Island.
Five beautiful private gardens welcomed visitors during this popular self-guided tour.
Garden owners, docents, and master gardeners were on hand to greet visitors and discuss the many colorful flora and stunning garden and home designs. Visitors were encouraged to explore each setting with leisure at their own pace.
Live music enhanced the experience at every garden throughout the weekend. Tour-goers enjoyed a range of sounds from classical to choral, bluegrass to reggae, strings to woodwinds – all specially selected to complement the beautiful garden settings.
This year’s featured gardens included:
Puget Sound Vista Garden: This welcoming, gracious high-bank waterfront property has been in the family for generations. The garden site features a Colonial-style residence and guest house, rolling lawns with a pond and expansive views of Puget Sound. A boxwood hedge is grown from cuttings at historic Mount Vernon.
A Weaver’s Garden: A fiber artist and plant collector expresses her love of color and texture in lush beds surrounding a stream and pond.
Eclectic Garden in the Woods: Explore meandering paths through an astonishing mix of native plants and colorful flowers.
Water Music: A tight-knit garden with orchard, vegetables, succulents, sculpted beds, and art features (and miniature horses!) in an estuarine environment.
Flowers in the Trees: Flagstone paths lead through meticulously designed flower beds that revel in afternoon sun.
Thanks to the generous support of local business sponsors, the Bainbridge In Bloom Garden Tour was offered at a lower admission price this year. Special thanks to Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty on Winslow Way, Bainbridge Gardens, and Bay Hay & Feed.
