Many visitors come to the Bloom for an insider’s view of six exquisite private gardens on Bainbridge Island. Some come for inspiration and others for the live music throughout the tour. Many hardy enthusiasts even ride their bikes around the circuit rather than drive to each garden. Don’t want to drive yourself? Transportation options are available through Kitsap Transit BI Ride. For more information on this option, visit their website or call 1-844-4BI-RIDE.
No matter how and why people experience the Bloom, every Bloom ticket holder contributes to the arts on Bainbridge Island. Proceeds from the garden tour support the programs and services of Arts & Humanities Bainbridge for students and teachers, both aspiring and professional artists, and more than 20 non-profit organizations on Bainbridge Island. Support the arts. Attend the Bloom!

Transformed into a waterfront café – with access to a stunning bonus garden – this Dan Hinkley inspired garden is not available to general admission ticket holders. Dan and specially trained garden docents will be in the garden to chat with you as well as offer plants for sale to inspire your own garden. Guests are encouraged to linger here anytime between 11-2 while enjoying the amazing views and beautiful artwork thoughtfully integrated throughout the landscape.

Remembering the 2014 Bainbridge in Bloom Gardens
We are Arts & Humanities Bainbridge. Our mission is to create an environment on Bainbridge Island where the arts and humanities may flourish, this includes music, visual arts, dance, theatre and more. The gardens that were chosen for last year’s tour each expressed the creative arts, as well as the individual owners and the beauty they planted, tended and cared for throughout the seasons
Highlight of last year’s Bloom were the studio and gardens of renowned landscape painter Gayle Bard. Designed with an artist’s point of view, the Living Canvas Garden illustrated composition, color, texture and tone.
Once a dense ravine filled with invasive species, the Landscape Melodies Garden was a timeless tempo of terraces with rhythmic paths and Asian-inspired bridges. The diverse planting arrangements finished on a high note: a vista view of Rich Passage.
Sculpted Serenity described three gardens seamlessly molded into the small spaces surrounding neighboring townhomes. Purposeful assemblages of peace and tranquility, those exceptional gardens defined compact creativity in an urban setting.
Century-old conifers framed the Dance of the Natives Garden. As stone pathways explored the understory, celebrating the partnering of native and ornamental plantings, a stunning water feature completed the choreography, repose in a tranquil setting.
The Midsummer Takes Center Stage Garden set the scene for shared stories with a giant beach-inspired fire pit. Lush ornamental and edible gardens lined the performance area. Further into the backdrop was “the wildspace” play area for the youngest of the cast members.
