March 26                  Minter Gardens

We left Vancouver for Chilliwak some 20 miles east, where the Minter Gardens are located. This is another show garden with some gorgeous “rooms” that are obviously used for weddings and parties. The only drawback to its serene vistas is the thrum of Canada 1, which borders the garden. It must be glorious in sunshine. By now, we were “gardened out.” We drove to Bellingham to visit friends and colleagues before flying home from Seattle.
