Each week I put up a batch of new articles but there are thousands more here to enjoy and learn from. Start by clicking on our Articles button in the Black Bar to be taken to over 9,000 articles from gardeners all over the world.

It's been a busy couple of months as I toured with groups on my Chelsea/Paris and Spain tours, then took a nice holiday with my husband on a cruise to Nice, Florence, Rome, Venice and Montenegro. My trip to Scotland was fabulous, so much so that I am putting a tour together for 2017, full of beautiful gardens, castles, palaces, a bit of drink and surprises and many memories to be made. Now home to get caught up and finalize tours for 2017 plus finalize our newly redesigned tours site that should be compatible now for laptop, ipad and phones...I invite you to visit it and once there if you notice anything that I should be aware of to please let me know. There is always something that can be improved upon and if we know about it we can sure try to make it easier for your visit there. I think it will always be a work in progress and I hope you like the name of my blog now...and the new colours!

Our Panama site is at WhyPanama.net Moving to a tropical country from Zone 3a in Alberta was sure some kind of adjustment, but one that we are so thankful we did. It has opened up a whole new world of plant material and article opportunities for me.
