Nine residential gardens, including the one above, are on show at this year's West Seattle Garden Tour next Sunday (July 21). This event not only offers up stunning views and special gardens, but supports a variety of non-profit and educational organizations. Last year's tour raised over $23,000 - this year's beneficiaries will be The Nature Consortium, Soos Creek, Arts West, Plant Amnesty, Luna Girls on Alki, and Seattle Tilth.
The tour costs $18 per person (kids under 12 are free) and includes admission to all the gardens and a noontime lecture.
