|Garden bloggers from three corners of Pennsylvania: from left, Carolyn, Pam and Julie - that's me :)|
Carolyn of Carolyn's Shade Gardens and Pam of Pam's English Cottage Gardens agreed to meet this spring for an outing to enjoy three amazing gardens: Carolyn's Shade Gardens, Chanticleer, and Longwood Gardens. They were both so gracious. We laughed about meeting each other for our "blind date" and appreciated how very unique the garden blogging community is. It was so fun to put some real faces and personalities behind all of the words that I read on my flat screen.
Here are a few teaser photos while I compile some longer posts for each garden:
|One of my first views of Carolyn's Shade Gardens... just captivating! As beautiful in the real world as it appears on the Internet.|
|View of the opposite side of Carolyn's house: home to many of her rare Hosta and shade plants of all kinds. A real treasure trove!|
|Chanticleer: a truly romantic estate garden with every inch covered in plants.|
|Chanticleer's beautiful Asian Woods.|
|Longwood Gardens: I finally saw the Wisteria Room in its purple garb!|
|Longwood's sumptuous long border displays for spring.|
