The gardens of Paul and Claire Grace of Shoreline were featured in an article last weekend in The Seattle Times' Pacific Magazine. (A Shoreline garden provides a bounty of food, plus spaces for dining, strolling and artwork)
The article, by Valerie Easton, starts with this:
PAUL AND CLAIRE Grace’s potager (traditional kitchen garden) is so productive that the Shoreline couple shares at harvest time with neighbors and the local food bank. As bountiful as the potager is, peas, beans and tomatoes aren’t all that’s happening in the Grace garden. The half-acre property is divided into rooms, each with its own feel and uses, including spaces for dining, strolling and viewing artwork.
The article, while interesting, is worth viewing just for the photos.

However, the house is worth seeing as well, which is why the Shoreline Historical Museum chose it for their Trillium Award House and Garden Tour.
The Shoreline Historical Museum is presenting, on Saturday September 17, a tour of the Trillium Heritage Award-winning Perkins/Haworth/Grace Estate, which includes both garden and historic home.
Discover the secrets of this 90 year-old beauty, nestled in the Richmond Highlands back when a few people saw this area as a hide-away from the city, and others saw it as an opportunity to realize the American Dream.
Tickets are on sale on the Shoreline Historical Museum website.
Go to the website or call 206-542-7111 for information. Advance ticket sales only; no day-of-event sales.
Light refreshments and complimentary champagne will be served in the garden - judging from the photos - well worth the price of the tour.
