Announcement (elsewhere) of sale this weekend led me to their web site.

Thanks for posting this. I live basically right across the lake from this home/nursery and have never heard about it before!

Maybe the rain was preventing you from seeing it. You can blame it on that, anyway.

I first saw the sale mentioned on the CUH Miller Library online events calendar.

Sure wish I could go to her sale and see her gardens.
But my garden in north Edmonds is on the NPA tour tomorrow.
(that has been a challenge getting ready with all this 39 degree convergence zone rainy weather--up until these past very few days anyway. I may put up signs saying "You should have seen my garden next week")

BUT anyway, Susie Eagen is coming to speak about Trilliums at the Edmonds NPA neighborhood group meeting this coming Wednesday evening, --a few guests are welcome if anyone is interested.

You are also welcome to come visit my garden 10AM to 4 tomorrow APR 23. Email for directions.

Bboy: Yep, I can blame the rain for the oversight -- this year for certain. Did you go? Paddled over around noon and discovered the sale ended at 11:00. The property looked gorgeous from the water and I will take note of the fall sale (and hours thereof!).

Plantknitter: Hope your tour went splendidly! The weather on Saturday was absolutely stellar.

Yes, I went. There was a small, eager mob at opening time. Plants for sale were grouped among low woodland perennial plantings lining paths winding around under a dark canopy of second-growth Douglas firs. More open area near house and lake, including landscaped lakefront slope featured on web site appeared to be closed to visitors.
