Garden aficionados are truly blessed this year, as famed Heronswood garden has been open twice already in 2013, with another open day coming up in September.  Heronswood is now owned and operated by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe who purchased it last summer.  The S’Klallam Tribe plans community events, plant sales, and other fundraising efforts to benefit the gardens.

On the last open day earlier this month, I had the pleasure to stroll through Heronswood, free to savor each trail and interesting foliage at my own leisurely pace.  There was much to take in and enough photos were taken for a dozen blog posts, but this is the plant that captured my heart.  Located at the garden’s entrance, this special fern is backdropped by Little and Lewis‘ hand-cast and painted concrete pillars.
