It’s kind of lame that I’ve never visited Heronswood, Dan Hinkley and Robert Jones’ Kitsap Penninsula, Washington nursery, especially since we’re only a couple hours away.

I heard Dan speak at a Vancouver Rose Society talk a few years ago – he’s a delightful speaker. And from what I’ve heard and seen in photographs, the garden is delightful, too.

While I’m tempted to wait until the spring to visit, winter might be a good time as well. I love seeing gardens in the winter when they’re so bare-bones. It’s a great way to look at the underlying structure in a garden without being over-wowed by flowers and foliage. And, of course, it’s a great time to check out plants for winter interest.
