Bainbridge Island - A Walk in the Garden




It is Outdoor Wednesday! Thank you Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for being such a lovely hostess and allowing me to share my vacation walk with you and the other Outdoor Wednesday bloggers!




Our vacation to Washington was wonderful...hot, but wonderful! The home on Bainbridge Island had a wonderful garden and tons of wildlife in the area...let me take you on a short tour....


Terraces from the house to the water....





Flowers along the deck to the stairs....















A shower to awaken...











Yard art along the way.....














Gorgeous hydrangeas....













Looking back upon the path....












A colorful palette of hydrangeas...













Seashells cover the bottom, at the shore.












Who was here before me...?














Ahhhh, the river otters....














Alas, no picture....they are elusive....













The honks of the Canadian Geese woke us every morning!













Ooooo....to hike back to the top......














Just opening....












Just opening and plentiful....














More hydrangeas....so colorful....













A delightful morning walk in the garden.....thank you for joining me!
