Washington State University ‘Discovery Garden’

The Washington State University ‘Discovery Garden’.

For such a small space this garden really covers all the bases. I liked it because I have a small yard, and there were lots of ideas on plantings for small spaces.

The Washington State University Gardens is in between La Conner and Mount Vernon in Washington state.
