Our Garden

Sunrise Acre has such natural beauty with a stand of Western Red Cedars, an amazing view and surrounded with Douglas Firs and other native plants.

We've created a bird sanctuary/buffer by the road with native willows, dogwoods and other moisture loving plants surrounding our seasonal pond.

The rest of the yard has slowly been turned into a series of gardens; a vegetable garden toward the road, shade garden along the side of the house and a fairly sunny garden toward the water.  Just one little patch of grass remains by the house and then a small mowed area of wilder grasses next to the marshy area. The front and back decks offer plants in containers.

I'm not a natural gardener but I learn a little at a time and find that spending time with the plants and wildlife in the yard is very soothing - my place of peace.
