Minter Gardens' closing event Sunday was a rainy one. By the time the sun popped out at about 4 p.m., only a few stalwarts were left to shake hands and exchange stories with founder Brian Minter who had been scheduled to give a talk. Minter opted for the personal touch instead, exchanging personal greetings. For those who braved the incessant rain, there were complimentary guided tours throughout the day, as well as cake, live music by Cascadia Wind Ensemble and a slide show capturing the garden's 33 years. Cascadia will be back at Minter Gardens from noon to 4 p.m. on Oct. 14 when the iconic garden is scheduled to close its doors for good. The public is invited to visit the gardens for one last stroll.
