To a visitor, a garden may seem a quiet, peaceful place for meditation. For the gardener, it can be the cause of physical pain, mental anguish, frustration and for the gardener’s spouse, well, it is often “a pain in the rear end!”
There has been much written recently about Holden Village and its 50th anniversary as a popular wilderness retreat. It is a place of respite, relaxation and renewal in a high-mountain setting of incredible beauty and peace. I’d heard about this wonderful place for most of the years I have lived in Wenatchee but never took the opportunity to visit until this summer.
