The Garden Tour - A - introduction

Tour The Hermit’s Grove gardens in color…

A full-detailed guide to our last gardens in Kirkland, WA with photos taken October 8. 2011 ce

This edition completed October, 2011 ce.

Our gardens are, from the front street, 75 feet wide and 700 feet deep …

We have over 45,000 square feet of garden with 600+ species.

Over many years readers of The Hermit’s Lantern have asked
for a map of the gardens.
It’s been quite a process. It took from July, 1994 ce
until October, 2006 ce
to get the gardens and beds all dug (by hand!) and the pebble paths put in place.
All pebbles came from working the soil … The stone paths catch the sun and are warmed, warmer than the soil and, as a result, miner bees have found our paths to be a wonderful refuge. We have thousands upon thousands of miner bees who now live in their deep burrows. Pollinators who do not sting, and who thrive in our gardens.

These truly are ‘hand-picked’ stones!!  We also tumble many of these stones. You, too, could have one of these beautiful, magickal stones from our gardens. Send an email to us to learn more.
