Compact PowellsWood Garden packs a lot of interest in its three acres.  The garden has parking for about 10 vehicles.  Proceed to the house at the center of the garden.  You'll find that it operates on the honor system.  Sign the guest book and deposit your $7 fee.

Now, perambulate around the garden thusly:

  • The garden patio bordered by the house garden.
  • The spring garden.  We were just past peak bloom in early May.
  • The shade garden.  Always at its peak.
  • The woodland garden under towering firs.
  • The ravine overlook down into the forest.
  • I sat for half an hour at the bird feeder, watching as the birds would get up their nerve to grab some seeds with me sitting nearby.
  • The highlight of the garden is the perennial border along the stream and pond.  Beautiful in all seasons.
  • The rhododendron and fern border at the top of the stream feature.
  • The round entry garden with tall maples.
  • And then back to the patio.

For an extended visit, you can walk down the ravine trail - about a mile and a half loop.  The trail was a bit rough.  You hear a stream at one point, but can't see it well.  I found some trillium in bloom along the trail.  The trail is steep in places.
