I recently discovered Garden Design’s Garden Tours page. One glance and I became engrossed in fascinating tour suggestions, both for self-guided day trips (on the East and West Coast) plus overnight guided tours. The page also has fascinating articles on magnificent public gardens, accompanied by breathtaking photography. But be forewarned – you may lose track of time when you disappear into this amazing world of gorgeous gardens and interesting people. (photo of Chanticleer by Rob Cardillo. This is one of the recommended gardens on the day trip itinerary for the Philadelphia area)
