The Chase Garden in Orting, WA has an annual Awakening garden day for all of us who are waiting impatiently for spring. We love to support and patronize these small gardens. Chase Garden has such a sweet story. It is part of the Garden Conservancy. “Garden preservation lies at the core of the Garden Conservancy’s mission to preserve America’s exceptional gardens for the education and enjoyment of the public”. Chase Garden is one of the many gardens worthy of preserving. It just so happened the rain held off and we could see Mt. Rainier and the beautiful Cascades. It’s definitely worth the drive. And a trip afterward to the Orting Bakery makes the morning perfect.
