Bainbridge In Bloom is coming June 3-4 – tickets are on sale now!
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND – The Bainbridge In Bloom Garden Tour, a perennial favorite of Northwest home and garden enthusiasts, returns for its 29th year June 3-4 on Bainbridge Island.
Five beautiful private gardens will welcome you during this popular self-guided tour, and you are encouraged to explore each setting with leisure at your own pace.
Garden owners and docents will be on hand to greet visitors and discuss the many colorful flora and stunning garden and home designs.
Live music will enhance the experience at every garden throughout the weekend. Enjoy a range of sounds throughout the tour from classical to choral, bluegrass to reggae, strings to woodwinds – all specially selected to complement the beautiful garden settings.
This year’s featured gardens include:
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 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.
