In September my friend and I went to a couple of very nice gardens close to our homes. The first one is Chase Gardens located between Orting and Graham , Washington.I took the picture of Mount Rainier from the back yard. It was so beautiful that day. The grounds of Chase Gardens are so nice. Beautiful old trees and native plants. There are trails through the woods to walk on and observe birds, plants and native under brush. They also have a plant sale to enjoy.
A couple of pictures to show you how nice it was.
The second garden we went to is called the Old Goat Farm. It is outstanding. It is owned by 2 men and it is full of blooming flowers and plants. In the back behind a wonderful old Victorian house are Goats , Peacocks, chickens , ducks , a darling cat and 2 great dogs. They also have a plant and gift shop. They are only open about six times a year. It is my favorite place. Here are a couple of pictures of their place. You just want to stay there forever.I have listed the Old Goat Farm in my links if you would like to look at their website
