Learning How to Garden

I have had a lovely time touring gardens across the entirety of England (Mottisfont Abbey, Laskett GardensSissinghurst Castle, Great Dixter– to name a few), and meeting with organizations such as the Heritage Rose Foundation and Royal Horticulture Society members. Surely, it sounds like the Triads are on permanent holiday! However, I can assure you that I am working my hardest at developing an eye for fine garden design and management.

The pictures below are a representation of places we (Nick and I) have been together, people we have met, and skills we have learned. Please enjoy!
