The Garden Conservatory's Open Days Tour

After visiting James David and Gary Peese's amazing garden during Spring Fling, I couldn't miss a chance to see it again and drag some more friends along with me during The Garden Conservatory's Open Days Tour. Just like my first time visiting this garden, I spent more time searching out interesting niches and talking to people than I did taking pictures. No matter, the garden was crowded with visitors and the light was terrible for photography, though I did have some decent pictures turn out in the shade.

And ironically, once again I somehow escaped taking a picture of the dramatic lawn. Someday I'm going to compile a list of links to everyone's Spring Fling pictures of that lawn, and it's going to be awesome.

I don't know how I missed this post before, Lori. Did you back date it? At any rate, you captured some of my favorite vignettes in David's garden. I especially liked that "secret" door tucked next to the cut-away shrub. And those gorgeous pots of succulents.

Pam, not only did you not miss this post (yup, I backdated it), you found it right after I put it up. I'm in the process of going through all the photos I took this summer and putting up posts. I got kind of burned out on fighting with Blogger, but I'd like my garden record to be more complete, so look for a few backdated posts over the next week or so. I'll post a current post with links to all of the backdated entries when I'm done catching up.

It can't truly work, I think this way.
