Meerkerk Gardens approaching full bloom

Today was a great day to visit Meerkerk Gardens.  It was a sunny and warm day, so we headed to Meerkerk Gardens to take in the sights and enjoy the Mother’s Day Concert on the lawn.  Meerkerk Gardens is suffering the same weather delays as the Skagit County Tulips, so while the rhododendrons normally would be at full bloom by now, it looks like it will be another week or two before they reach full bloom. 

But as you can see from the pictures here, there are still plenty of rhodies and other flowers in bloom, including the cherry trees, the daffodils, and azaleas.   

If you would like to see the rhododendrons in full bloom, plan on making one of these upcoming events:

Meerkerk Magic Festival of Flowers and Fairies
Saturday, May 14th  Noon – 4pm

An Evening of Wine and Rhodies
Saturday, May 21st 4pm

About halhovey

A transplant from the east coast, I spent many years living in the deserts of Arizona and Nevada before finally finding a little piece of paradise on Whidbey Island that I call home. This is where I chose to raise my kids, set down roots, and eventually retire. In my blog I hope to share timely information and statitistics about our local real estate market, as well as a few of the people, places and homes around Whidbey Island that I find special, or interesting.
