Bellevue Botanical Garden

Good weather doesn’t come to the Northwest until after the 4th of July.  May and June were pretty cool and gray here but we still enjoyed all of the fabulous blooms that spring and summer bring!  A few weeks ago we ignored some spitting rain and took a walk through the Bellevue Botanical Garden.

A new feature at the Garden is a suspension bridge.  It’s just a short walk into the woods.  It’s built over a small ravine, maybe 20 feet deep.  It’s fun – it bounces around a bit when you walk over it!

    Beautiful photos! I just visited Bellevue two weeks ago for a conference but missed the botanical gardens, seeing your photos really makes me wish I’d made the time!

      Glad you enjoyed the pics. Now you have a reason for a return visit. I enjoyed your Bellevue convention recap even though my science background is limited to Discover Magazine.

        Thanks so much! I would love to come back to Bellevue, it was such a great place to experience.

        And I LOVE Discover Magazine, I’m always so happy to hear that people outside of science are reading it 🙂
