The courtyard will be open to the public this Sunday, Feb 6th at 12PM. Visit the Seattle Chinese Garden website for more information!

Just in time for the festivities, the ever so fragrant wintersweet was in full bloom near the Song Mei Pavillion and its richly scented blossoms could be detected in the courtyard several meters away.

Chimonanthus praecox v. luteus .

What a treat for us after a meeting of the horticultural committee for the garden: landscape designer, Phil Wood, who hosted our meeting, cut us sprigs of his wintersweet growing in his garden in Wallingford.


May the year bring you many warm and humble moments and the presence of loved ones around you at all times.
