While on assignment for the likes of House & Garden and National Geographic over the past 20 years, photographer Andrea Jones has been lucky enough to set foot in many of the world’s finest gardens.
Last week, a plum tree was planted in Seattle. Local volunteers planted the tree in an undeveloped field that will soon be dense with lots more trees, on a sloping seven-acre swath of land in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. The forager-friendly garden will be called Beacon Food Forest, and it promises to feed, educate, and connect the community from its verdant perch just two miles from downtown Seattle. With a projected seven acres of fruits, nuts, and vegetables, it will be the nation's largest public edible landscape.
For a serene moment, stand beneath Bloedel Reserve’s dense tree canopy and sink your toes into the thick carpet of moss on the forest floor. Fortunately, an entire section of the gardens in the reserve is devoted to moss. The Moss Garden grows over 15 varieties of indigenous mosses that have developed and spread naturally over the rocks and trees, including Eurhynchium prealongum, Brachythedium frigidum and Rhytidiadelphus loreus.
