After leaving the Heritage Rose garden, we headed back to
our own Washington State.
With the daylight hours lasting till well after 8 o'clock
we stopped at one last garden.
We needed to stretch our legs and this is a favorite
place for us whenever we are driving by.
(Please visit their web site for all the history of this lovely place.)
While we were too early for most of the gardens we previously visited,
here at the lilac gardens, the season was near the end.
Let's begin our tour at the front steps of Hulda's home.
We are greeted with majestic rhododendrens (above)
and thriving hosta's (below).

The bed below, surrounded by boxwood
is Hulda's "FlatIron" bed.
Be sure to read about it on the website. ;~}
Time to say goodbye to Hulda's beautiful gardens
and head home, still two hours away.
I hope you enjoyed the garden tour as much as I did.
This was Gentleman Farmer's Belated Birthday gift to me.
Thank you, Darling, for devoting an entire day of flowers to me.
"My beloved responded and said to me, 'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along. For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for pruning the vines, and the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land. The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along!"
Song of Solomon 2:10-13
