Bloedel Reserve - Part 2

Bloedel Reserve

Continuing with photos of springtime at Bloedel Reserve. My favorite area was just off the main estate house. Following down the waterfall, the path leads us to the Birch Garden and Rhododendron glen. It was a wonderland of wood land plants. Later in the spring the Rhododendrons and hydrangea bloom with woodland orchids.

These shots are stunning - I can't believe that it took you so long to visit this garden. What a gorgeous variety of plant life there!
