England and Its Gardens

We are thinking spring today. And remembering one of the greatest garden adventures ever.
We saw so much on our whirlwind tour of English gardens five years ago. It was amazing!

We would love to go on the 2016 version of this tour which moves North and into Wales, and are a bit envious of a friend who may get to, but even while the price of gasoline is dropping like a stone, confusingly, airfare is not.

Deborah Kerr in An Affair to Remember says, "Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories." and she is so right. So for this year we will rely on memories of our brief affair with English gardens and be thankful for them.

When we need a little garden fix in the winter we watch, and watch, and watch again this little production made from our photos of England and Its Gardens. You might enjoy it too.

If after this you still need even more promise that Spring is on its way consider coming together with like minded people for this annual, perennially inspiring event.

Think Spring!

Was sitting out in the backyard with Oscar today (in snowpants) and it was just warm enough to start daydreaming about spring gardening!
