Art in Bloom

Rich and Ruth Williams
300 Center Street West

This formal garden sits in the center of Eatonville. When Rich and Ruthie purchased the property ten years ago, it was overgrown garden and cried out for some much-needed TLC. The couple has spent years rejuvenating the property — pruning, editing and planting. Their work as paid off!

Follow Brick paths that wander through the backyard to various rooms. Sit under a wisteria arbor or under and enormous black walnut tree. Enjoy the many plants and shrubs, from hydrangea and lavender. And that pink dogwood tree? That was moved from Eatonville High School during the last remodel.

Bonus: There will be a collection of container gardens on display. Vote for your favorite.

Powell Garden
9107 Ohop Valley Rd. East

A year and a half ago Jason and Chrystal Powell purchased their home in Ohop Valley. At once they began work on their3-acre yard. This serene, woodland oasis now includes a host of fruits trees, a dozen new rhododendrons, colorful flower beds, a funky 1964 Ford truck (aka a very large container garden), and a Bigfoot to welcome you.

As you take a stroll, there is a surprise around every corner — yard art, plantings and ancient tree stumps nursing the next generation. And don’t forget to look up, because Mt. Rainier will be looming over you.

Bonus: Local garden artist will have stand there on Sunday offering unique garden art.

Diane Mettler and Chris Bivins
7107 Ohop Valley Rd. E.

Diane and Chris’s yard is designed with an artistic flair and will be showcasing a variety of garden art — ceramics, metal sculpture, tile, woodworking and more. Not only will you find ideas on how to dress up your yard with art, you might go home with some. Many of the creations will also be for sale on Sunday.

Charlie and Lynn Butler Garden
13301 444th St. E.

When Charlie and Lynn purchased their property, it was just wooded hilltop. They got busy landscaping and you will be amazed at the outstanding results. Enjoy flower beds, sloping lawns, a vineyard and more.

The focal point of this yard is a 12,000-gallon stream and pond that wraps around the home.

Bonus: A breathtaking view!
