Talking about Fall and changes. The Bellevue Botanical Garden perennial and shrub borders supported by the Northwest Perennial Alliance will be going through some much needed changes soon. These borders have been an inspiration to me even before I moved to Seattle. Volunteer powered and the brain ( and back) child of Whithey and Price it has been the showpiece of BBG. Managing a border to keep it fresh beyond the first 5 years is a challenge and when the borders are over 15 years sometimes bulldozers are in order. I’m looking forward to the new developments, because when I toured the border today I realized it was already being ripped a part


and now.
