Bellevue Botanical Garden

After our lunch in Moksha, Bellevue and finishing our meetings today, I had free time in the evening. I decided to go to Bellevue Botanical Garden, though I have been visiting Bellevue & Redmond for many years I haven’t visited this garden. Online I read good things about the garden and I was expecting to see much lovely flora there. Today was quite cold, not an ideal day to walk long outside, so there were few other visitors in the garden, parking lots were nearly empty. Some construction work was going on, so we took few minutes to locate the entrance.

Next, to the parking lot, there was a synthetic football (soccer in the USA?) court for students. It was empty when we went, so we took some photos standing on it – this is the closest I have gotten to a proper football court.

The actual garden turned out to be just a long walk, there was no flora or fauna to see – this was winter, a wrong time to visit it. I am sure in Spring & Summer it would be thriving with life and lovely flowers.

Near the visitor information centre at the far end of the garden, they were decorating for the light show in the late evening. Since we were there during daytime we came out visualizing what the lights will look like and walked out.
