Never Enough Garden Tours!

This is a garden tour that I took about three weeks ago. I planned on posting it then but was distracted by other events. It's easy this time of the year!

This is a private garden in Greensboro, NC. It's is a gorgeous, perfectly manicured woodland garden. He has many rare and unusual conifers and woodland plants. Dozens of Camellias adorn the yard but they were mostly finished blooming. Here is a little tour of his very large yard.

A shot of his vegitable plot. I love the raised beds.


A close up of his rock garden. Every plant in this bed is miniature.


It's an incredible collection of tiny plants. Even miniature candy tuft!


Anemone in the rock garden.


One of the many trails on the property.


Camellia!


I can't get enough of trilliums.



He had many Epimediums throughout the gardens.


Chinese Mayapple


The front yard! This stone wall is gorgeous.


Arisaema a.k.a. Jack in the Pulpit.


Perfect paths. His property was several acres at least and was completely landscaped!



Japanese Maples. Just two of dozens.

Beautiful. You are so lucky to be able to go on garden tours. Maybe I'll check and see if they have any around here. I know they don't in our tiny towns but maybe the next bigger ones might! I'd love to go to Portland or Seattle and hit some there. WoW!

What a beautiful paradise, every photo has a unique quality to it. On a whole, I love the "manicured" or "tended" feel it evokes. And as a walker, I'd love to spend time walking those paths, soaking up nature there.

Lovely photos. I'm not QUITE as jealous as last time I visited since the sun's out here and it's 80 degrees. But, never fear...rain is on the way:>)

Wow, what a beautiful garden! I can hardly wait. We will have garden tours hosted by the Victoria Master Gardeners Association in a few weeks. I can hardly wait. Of course, I'll be taking tons of photos.
Blessings,
