One Man’s Garden in Tacoma

31 Aug


For years many have passed this house and marveled at the floral display at 3725 No. Vassault St. in Tacoma. Last year there was no display and we had wondered if the Asian man who owns this house was ill. This year the display was back in force and we stopped this past Sunday to photograph it. We went up to the owner and told him how much we had enjoyed his garden all these years and he invited us to tour his creation. We found the backyard to be as beautiful as the front.

He is Vietnamese, shy, very soft spoken, and speaks very little English, so we couldn’t discuss too much with him about the garden. I hope you all enjoy this as much as we did.
