I used to live right next door to the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island. It is 175 acres of lush gardens. My three sons used to slip under the fence and go exploring. They once shared their secret place with me and we all climbed the bank by the water to go see their favorite meadow. It was magically beautiful and a memory I shall always cherish. This is not that meadow, but it is a beautiful one just as you enter the reserve.
