Heronswood Tour

August 6th, 2014

I’m happy to announce that I was able to schedule a tour of Heronswood on September 9th at 10 am.  This garden has been on my bucket list for a LONG time.  Last time I was in Seattle it was up for sale and not open to the public, which was a BIG disappointment.  When I checked about visiting this fall I found out that the minimum number of people for the tour is 10 (with a $10/person charge).  I went ahead and scheduled the tour, if I don’t end up finding a group of 10 I’ll be paying the tour fee by myself, which is completely worth it.  It would be nice to tour with the garden with friends, so if you live in the Seattle area and would like to join us let me know.

I’ve seen lots of photos of this garden and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to see it in person.

Do you have any gardens on your must visit bucket list?
