Jewell Gardens is about a mile from where we have lunch. The walk is easy, and at least our destination is visible once we cross the river.
The gardens also feature a glass blowing facility and artist gallery. Arguably this visit is late for the height of bloom in the garden, but still interesting to see. Besides, we have about 6 more hours until our ferry departs for Haines!
It is interesting to see Tuberous Begonias interspersed with hand blown glass. They do seem to compliment each other.
The gardens also feature a restaurant, but we arrived after the lunch serving. The setting is lovely, don't you think?
We love the model railroad set up, but next we visit the rows and rows of fresh veggies they use in the restaurant. Eggplant colored kale, awesome!
Here I am in the kitchen with the head chef. He graciously gave us a tour. But now it's time to visit the cemetery!
