Edmonds in Bloom 2021 Garden Tour returns to sell-out crowd

After a year’s hiatus due to COVID, the Edmonds in Bloom 25th anniversary garden tour came back in a big way on Sunday. The sold-out tour set a new attendance record, drawing more than 850 visitors from Edmonds and beyond, with one group traveling all the way from Wisconsin to attend.

With six gardens to visit, attendees enjoyed a wide variety of landscape styles, creative use of plant materials, water features, hardscape and more, all a reflection of the life, passion and artistic expression of the garden hosts.  Many included creatively hidden and secluded seating areas designed to transport the visitor into a world of peace and natural beauty. Live musical talent and plein air artists creating works during the tour added to the ambiance, making for a very special and uniquely Edmonds experience.

  1. Unfortunately, while folks were enjoying the beautiful gardens, neighbors were suffering with deadlocked streets, trampled and crushed plants, cars parked on private property including side yards, folks who felt they had ‘the right’ to park/walk wherever they wanted and poor crowd management (though the effort was genuinely made). Maybe the organizers should consider using an off-site parking area and buses, like some other events do – especially since this event takes place in residential areas.
