Spring Postcard from the Bloedel Reserve

 In Washington


My friend Nicole over at Camera Crypt sent me some beautiful pictures from her recent tour through the Bloedel Reserve. This is an old estate that was developed into a public garden and covers over 150 acres on Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound, just a short ferry ride from Seattle. I have been dying to make it out to the reserve but just haven’t had the chance to yet. Enjoy a sneak peek at a little adventure that is definitely in our future after baby boy #2 arrives.

Nicole is showing off some really amazing work on her camera blog, including several more photos from her trip to Bloedel Reserve.
