The Garden Tour - K - East of the Stone Circle
Just beyond the tree which leans to the north is the intersection with the path which enters the Memorial Grove along the south side.
Off to the right is the memorial bench for Rev. Paul and Rev. Gerry.
The round fencing is to protect a small tree, one we wish to have a long life. For the many years when deer had access, this tree was an ever-nibbled source of pleasure for the deer.
Over the path is a Western Hemlock. This tree sprouted in the slowly decaying stump of an old growth cedar but the stump is disappearing. We’ve been building up a mound of composting material to provide future nutrition and support for the hemlock’s roots.
The ‘Overlook’ is the east end of the tour. Here the path looks over a deep gully which, only several hundred feet from its beginning (at 100th Street) is already 50 feet deep.
Our property line is actually halfway up the other side, although this view does not allow itself to be captured on film. You’ll have to see it for yourself.
Here you see it from the Northwest.
Plans for a new sacred site are now being developed by WoMN, a Lay Minister and also our Director of Real Estate. She has worked in the gardens more than anyone other than the Beyerls and has the strongest bond with them
