Heronswood

Recommended Posts

Er, now that i can post pics directly here, i will be dangerous.  i LOVE Heronswood, and since i'm going out there every Friday while it's open, i decided to give it its own thread.

This is to give some idea of the size of the native trees - the little blue car at the bottom left is mine :oh:

This is the totem pole that was carved from a huge cedar log when the garden was eventually re-opened by the S'Klallam tribe, who bought the property at auction (a long, sad story with a fortunately happy ending) and saved it from developers.  This is the side that faces the garden:

This is a side view that shows the profile of the heron and the frog on the side that faces front (the light was wrong for me to be able to get a front view):

The little pond has a frog fountain, and a number of little fish.  A couple of real frogs, and most recently, a turtle have moved in.  i haven't seen the turtle yet, but you can just about see one of the frogs in the second pic:
