Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

The Bloedel Reserve Part II

I'm not sure what more I have to say about the Bloedel Reserve, so for the most part, I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

More of the Moss Garden -- the moss made such a beautiful carpet, when the sun was shining on it, it was electric!

 The roots of a tree that fell and was left where it lay

The Woodland Garden
Waterfall near the house, at the beginning of the path

Everywhere on the woodland walk, you could either hear the stream, or catch a glimpse of it through the trees.

 Every tree trunk or stump had a cluster of plants at its base.

The Japanese Garden (my one and only picture -- of rocks)

I thought this couple sitting by the water made an interesting subject -- I wasn't close enough to eavesdrop.

Thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments on my previous post about the Bloedel Reserve. I hope I'm not pushing my luck posting more!


  1. Alison, oh, no, you're not pushing your luck posting this second group of pictures, how beautiful this garden is! I have never seen so much moss and plants springing up everywhere. Loved the rocks in the first picture (and thank you for posting the rocks in the Japanese Garden, too!) Lovely, lovely garden and great photography, I felt like I've toured it with you in person.

  2. Gosh, I was in Brambrige once. I wish I had known those gardens were there! Isn't mother nature amazing! Such colors, textures, and your photography set everything off perfectly. Thank you for the tour.

  3. Oh wow, this is so beautiful - it looks incredibly peaceful and tranquil. Wish I could be there to smell it!


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
