I enjoyed my stay in Spokane, Washington with my sisters. I got to visit Jackie’s Garden. It is even more gorgeous in person then it is on her blog.
Jackie had some daisies, my all-time favorite flower.
Here is a gorgeous fox glove Bell in Caryl’s hand. She wanted to make certain I could see the inside pattern. I decided since Caryl liked the fox glove so much, I should take her picture with them. And Jackie came along and joined the fun.
So, here are three gorgeous flowers (and one obnoxious owl who joined the photo without permission).
When visiting Jackie’s yard, one needs to stop by the pond out front. T hand dug this pond for Jackie so that her Koi would also have a place to live once he and Jackie married. It was a case of “love me, love my fish” and T apparently did. These fish have a wonderful home. This photo shows Jackie on her knees by the pond petting the fish. When she knelt down and put her hand in the water they all darted over for their share of attention and petting.
Jackie’s secret garden also houses a church. Inside you will see that a couple of bees seeking sanctuary moved in and began remodeling the place. It turned out not to be much of a sanctuary after all. The place was bombed shortly after this photo was snapped, and long before they could finish the job and move in. What is the world coming to that not even a church is a safe haven?
Upon leaving Jackie’s Garden I traveled to Seattle Washington, and crossed Puget Sound in a ferry. I am now quite comfortable in our two bedroom apartment on the Friday Harbor Labratory UW campus. Pictures soon to follow.
