Spring Wildflowers
Lakewold Gardens, just south of Tacoma, WA, is an estate garden with a casual, intimate appeal. Though the famous landscape architect Thomas Church was commissioned to help the owner design the 10-acre site, the garden's small, enclosed rooms, narrow pathways and framed vistas feel very private. During a morning visit in mid-April, I was delighted to see a wonderful assortment of wildflowers. With the garden entirely to myself, I spent almost two hours on hands and knees, face to face with trilliums and trout lilies, hepatica, bellwort, rue-anemone, wild geranium, cyclamen and forget-me-nots. -Kathy LaLiberte, Gardener's Supply
