South King Media Photographer to Speak at PowellsWood Garden May 12


Award-winning South King Media photojournalist Michael Brunk will be a featured presenter this year with Federal Way’s citywide Buds & Blooms festival on Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-13.

Buds & Blooms took a hiatus for 2011 but is back this year, bigger and stronger and more vibrant than ever. Events will be held once again at PowellsWood, on the upper edge of Des Moines’ Redondo district, as well as at the Rhododendron Species Garden, the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection, the Commons, and more.

Michael Brunk’s presentation will be at 3 PM on May 12 at PowellsWood: A Northwest Garden, which will also be hosting teas, other lectures, musical groups, tours, and (of course!) a veritable sea of vibrant floral color.
