Highlights from some of the unique gardens that were part of this year's popular event

A coltsfoot display
A gentle slope of lawn leads the eye to a dramatic planting of coltsfoot surrounding a massive fallen log, which marks the transition from open space to forest. A bright red art piece references other bright red touches, and other repurposed picture frames, throughout the garden. The forest, a prime example of the rare Douglas Fir coastal forest zone, has been left intact, but carefully and respectfully tidied and opened up by Des and Sandy Kennedy to increase the sense of light and space.
