Bainbridge in Bloom celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this month, and we were there to participate. It was our very first time enjoying the self-guided tour, which featured five Bainbridge Island gardens in five different neighborhoods.

If we would have gotten our act together early enough in the day, we would have had the time to see all of them. What we did see was nothing short of spectacular.

Live musicians for garden lovers to listen to as they stroll. Bainbridge in Bloom is a class act!

Astrantia ‘Ruby Wedding’ complements the house beautifully.
