The Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden in Seattle

The Sunny Bank I was very excited to get the opportunity to visit this garden because I've heard so much about it. It did not disappoint. The garden was created by Elisabeth Carey Miller and her husband Pendleton who purchased the house in 1948. Mrs. Miller was a self-taught gardener who used her artistic skills (she majored in Art History) to create the stunning garden which features a dense canopy of native conifers. She became a plant collector and tracked down unusual specimens and was known as a well-respected plantswoman in the horticultural community. The front entrance Visiting this garden is not exactly easy. It is situated in a restricted community and there is a limit to the number of visitors per year. You must make an appointment on the website at designated times or you can find a tour group like I did. The address isn't listed either although even if you had it, you would have to get past the security guard at the gate to the neighborhood. I think if I lived in

  6. Hi Phillip... I have to confess I really wish hummingbird feeders did not exist... always see it as feeding "fast food" to our little friends. Kind of like a sleazy fast food dive, and I have never understood how folks enjoy seeing such a beauty sipping from plastic. Your hummingbird feeder is a thing of utter beauty however, and from the looks of it, you keep it very clean. Is this something you made yourself? Timeless photo! Beautiful! Brava!

  7. Beautiful feeder. It has an antique look. Don't think I've seen one like that locally.

  8. Fantastic photo!

    I do love that bottle on your feeder. We rarely use the feeders in midsummer with so many flowers in bloom (we use it in early spring and late fall). Is the bottle antique? Did you make this yourself? I'd love to have a few of those!

  13. You are joking! Really... well there is a reason to go to Wal Mart... if one must have a feeder... but surely you are joking... is it glass?
