Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Edmonds, Washington Street Gardens

In a time where states and counties and cities and towns are cutting back, I am infinitely grateful to my little home town that they find the resources to maintain the street gardens. In the town, you find huge baskets of flowers hanging from poles along the main streets (one of which is called Main Street, in true small town fashion). These are from the street level gardens; they are so beautiful.

Nearby, two of our favorite stores are side by side:

Woo HOOO, Half Price Books is having their annual Labor Day Sale, 20% off everything in the store. Like we need more books. ;-)

  1. Those remind me a lot of the gardens here in Germany! You were right – this place is amazingly beautiful. I absolutely love it, and if you feel like visiting Germany again, you’ve got a bed to sleep in here!

  2. I am so happy to hear from you, and happy to hear that you are enjoying this great new adventure. I hope you love the food, too, Emma, that you and your hubby find some great new treats you never dreamed existed, and that you try a dunkelbier or two and think of me. There are also wonderful hikes through the southern mountains, and cities like Ulm and Munich, and Garmisch . . . oh! the fun you are going to have! Your spare bed is going to be well used; just wait until your families start visiting, LOL!

  4. Oh Daggero, some of the best tomatoes I have ever eaten came from my friend’s Kuwait winter garden, oh YUMMM. And I also remember buying some spinach from Yasmin Farms at the Sultan Center, the very best tasting spinach I can ever remember . . . Are the cool breezes starting to blow in Kuwait?
