England Garden Tour with Marty Wingate

One of the best destinations for garden touring is England. The gardens and variety of plants are fantastic. Plus the people and pubs are very friendly. My good friend and fellow garden writer, Marty Wingate, has an England garden tour this summer with a few spots available. It will focus on gardens of the Cotswolds with a visit to the Royal Hampton Court Flower Show. The dates are July 6th to July 16th, 2016. The itinerary and details are at Northwest Travel.

Heronswood Garden: Open Every Friday

When our local Heronswood Garden in Kingston reopened, it started out with a handfull of open days each year. Now it is open to the public for self-guided tours every Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with the last Garden entry at 2:30 p.m.). The entry fee is $10 per person and a map is included. The Garden is disabled accessible. There will be specialty plant vendor sales on Fridays. Of course, there are still 4 seasonal open days every yeary. These events include lectures, guided tours, and plant sales.

Recycling is Easy!

I live in Seattle and the Seattle Public Utilities makes recycling easy. Every year, they send out a flier to remind you what goes where but if you are unsure where to put something, you can Look it Up!
