Sneak peek at stunning sights of 2016 Edmonds in Bloom Garden Tour

The 21st annual Edmonds in Bloom Garden Tour gets underway bright and early Sunday, and while always a great show, this year’s homeowners have turned themselves inside out and produced a real stunner.

The tour features seven homes offering a wide range of garden styles from the massive to the intimate. In addition to a wide array of spectacular floral displays, water features, live music, sculpture and garden art abound, much of it the work of the owners themselves. And beyond just the sensory treat, the tour is also a chance to talk with individual homeowners eager to share their knowledge, and provide tips and advice on everything from culturing plants and amending soil to building hardscape and maintaining a Koi pond.

The tour begins promptly at 11 a.m. at Garden #1, 4906 138th St. S.W., the home of Dale and Sandy Dahlberg, where advance ticket holders can pick up maps and directions. If you haven’t purchased an advance ticket, don’t fret. Tickets will be on sale at Garden #1 for $20, cash or check only. Sorry, no credit cards.

The weather promises a real “Edmonds kind of day,” with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70s. Wear comfortable shoes, bring your cameras and garden questions, and prepare to experience some of Edmonds’ most beautiful gardens.
