Within close proximity to Bainbridge Island is the beautiful Heronswood Gardens. One of the finest and most diverse private botanical gardens in the US. The gardens are open only during designated public event dates. The next open garden date is Saturday June 30th from 10 - 4, with a $5.00 entry fee. if you have always wanted to see this garden, you may not want to hesitate - as the property is for sale.
A 15 acre world class property - there is much to see on the self-guided tour. If you can't get there, stay tuned - I will be posting a garden tour with photos from some of my past visits to Heronswood later this summer. More details on the upcoming open day can be found here.
