‘Tis the season to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty — in the garden, of course. This spring, get inspired at the 29th annual Bainbridge in Bloom Garden Tour, which provides the perfect opportunity to peruse some of the best garden designs the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

On Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4, home and garden enthusiasts will experience five private outdoor spaces on a self-guided tour. The popular event, which draws visitors from around the country, showcases stunning home gardens in a leisurely setting. Garden owners and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions and to discuss the colorful flora and impressive designs. Live music — specifically matched to each space — will add to every garden’s allure, and participants will enjoy everything from classical and choral music to bluegrass and reggae.

Each garden has its own flair, highlighting innovation, style, and creativity. Featuring orchards, waterfront properties with rolling lawns, wooded plots, water features, native plants, and local vegetables, the tour is a spectacle of our region’s enhanced natural beauty.

Tickets for the tour are now available online at, or in person at Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) on Winslow Way, Bainbridge Gardens, and Bay Hay & Feed. Single-day passes are $30, and two-day passes are $50. Admission includes access to the gardens, interpretive materials, discount coupons to local businesses, and more.

Presented by Arts & Humanities Bainbridge, and sponsored by RSIR, you do not want to miss our region’s premier garden event. Visit the tour’s Facebook page for updates and announcements, or email for more information.

Embrace the Waterfront Lifestyle at the Seattle Boat Show, Docked January 23 to February 1

That time of year is upon us again as the arrival of the Seattle Boat Show draws nearer! The largest boat show on the West Coast, with landlocked exhibits at CenturyLink Field and waterfront attractions at South Lake Union, features over 1,000 watercraft, enlightening seminars, and the latest in all things boating.

This year, the event includes some exceptional prizes, including a pair of 2015 Seahawks season tickets, a one year membership with Seattle Boat share, and a 7-night Mexican Cruise. In addition, there are a number of special events not to be missed as opening night goes “uncorked” with award-winning Washington wines from 5-9p, January 26th is “Women’s Day” with free admission, special seminars, and a reception for women, and January 30th brings craft beer night with “Sails and Ales” from 5-9p.

The coming of this fabulous event has us thinking about how much we truly cherish the waterfront lifestyle and the unique opportunities it provides. According to the Sotheby’s International Realty Luxury Lifestyle Report, we are not alone in our love of the shores, as most affluent consumers say a waterfront property sits at the top of their list for future purchases.

In addition, waterfront properties also comprise more lifestyle searches on than any other type.
