We love finding places like that to spend time! You are a wonderful photographer, my friend and you had good lighting to take photos of your hubby and yourself! You look very cute and have a beautiful smile! Thanks for sharing! I'm enjoying learning about new places! ♥

Thank you, Diane and Trish, for the very sweet comments. The Blodel Reserve is an amazing place! We are so blessed that the Bloedel family wanted the public to experience the beauty of the property. I am going to be sharing--in part three--photos and write up from the family scrapbook. This tells a little history of the Bloedels. The couple moved into the home as empty nesters. The 100 plus acres on the property was wooded at the time that they moved there in the 50's. Mrs. Bloedel loved the home and it's formality. Mr. Bloedel wanted to develop the property and had a vision of what he hoped it would be. They would gift each other at holiday time little projects that they had completed for each other on the property. They were a very interesting couple. My husband and I loved the Reserve so much that we became members on our visit. We are going there on Mother's Day afternoon to listen to a pianist perform in the main house. I'll post some photos of that, too. I was excited to share the beauty of this area. The Reserve is listed in the top ten gardens to visit. Have a wonderful day today. xoxo Kim
