Rosedale Gardens June 25th

Nice deck looks down
over main retail area of plants
Outskirts of property has
 natural/non retail areas
   This week we will attend a whimsical place called Rosedale Gardens in Gig Harbor. Although it is a retail nursery, there products are displayed among many permanent garden like features from walking paths to arbors and tiered decks that look out over the property. There is sun, shade and some shelter sprinkled throughout. Rain or shine, whether you want to do a study of a specific plant that you don't have in your own garden or enjoy the efforts of somebody else's landscaping, there will be plenty of garden like inspiration to create from... and perhaps something to take home.
   Since it is retail establishment I ask that you don't park in front of the store so that we can be respectful of their customer clientele.  Our hostess says that there is plenty of parking at the top of the property (look for the my lil red truck) just after you turn off of Rosedale, She is asking us to park there for our event and is expecting us to arrive at 9:30. Bring a lunch if you want to join us after the event for a little "munch and chat".

Directions: Take the all too familiar Wollochet exit from hwy 16. If you are coming from the east instead of turning left at the light (to head toward the waterfront) proceed forward and the street becomes Stinson. From the west turn left at 1st light, pass over 16 and the next light will be Stinson where you turn left again. Pass a gas station and come to a 4 way stop sign- proceed forward. The next 4 way stop sign (you see goodwill drop off truck on left and recyle bins on right far corner), this will be Rosedale- take a left. Follow this (under hwy 16) about 2.2 miles and Rosedale gardens will be on the right. Park on that street and walk down the other inlet onto property to work.
