Spring Fling - Just Pictures

Day 2 of the Garden Bloggers' Fling in Seattle had me realizing what a wonderful treat it has been to be invited to tour private gardens I have only ever seen in magazines. Each garden is unique and beautiful in it's own way, and all provide a visual feast that I happily gobbled up. And now I'm pooped. and have only the energy to share just a smattering of what today's first garden offered.

This garden by Michelle and Christopher Epping was gorgeous and just plain delightful to meander through, discovering its many treasures.


This inspires me to incorporate more statues in my garden.

You got some great photos, Melanthia! There are some things here that I got crappy pics off, and others that I didn't even see.

What a pretty garden! I love all the art and sculptures in their garden. I'm so jealous of you all! :)

Beautiful! I love sculptures in the garden too. Wish I could have gone on the Fling. Instead I'll just have to vicariously enjoy through your pix and posts.

You've got some beautiful photos from the fling! I think its going to take me a year to get mine all sorted and published online. ;) Wonderful to meet you, Melanthia!
