And you probably thought I was kidding, didn’t you? … So this is the story of friends getting together to enjoy each other’s company, share gardening stories, and have a walk about our gardens. “Tour” is such a formal word. We were among friends and there was laughter, a relaxed atmosphere, and it was a very enjoyable day! Oh, and yes, that tower is in a fabulous garden.
The organizer of everything wonderful is my dear friend Susan. She has such a wealth of knowledge, and knows tons about plants too! I couldn’t ask for a better friend. We laughed when I took this picture because I love the painting above her head. It was a very sly way of me capturing both.
I love pottery. Isn’t this purple design lovely? We enjoyed coffee (or tea) and homemade scones at the start of our visit.
Susan’s garden is amazing. There is a great deal of beautiful stone work in addition to the tower! It has a very welcoming feel all around. I found it difficult to capture it in pictures, try as I may. Even though you might not get the entire feel of the garden, I think you will enjoy seeing bits and pieces as captured through my lens.
It was a full morning just at Susan’s house! I will save the pictures from Debbie’s and Gio’s garden for another post. I’m grateful for my friends, and that they share their love of gardening with me.
Happy gardening (even better with a friend)!
