Bloedel Reserve

My first post of 2014 comes from the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island, WA.  We were on the island visiting my son’s family and took the four grandkids there for a hike.  It was cold, raining, and cloudy.  There was very little in bloom but I did find this Golden Weeping Willow which is a hybrid and has this wonderful winter color.

The Reserve’s 150 acres has natural woodlands, landscaped gardens, including a Japanese Garden, a Moss Garden, a Reflection Pool and the Bloedels’ former estate home.  Portions of the property over look the sound.
