Scotland was fabulous, so much so that I am putting a tour together for 2018, full of beautiful gardens, castles, palaces, a bit of drink and surprises and many memories to be made. Now as I prepare for Chelsea/Paris and Spain following that I am madly trying to get caught up...always a perennial challenge - to get caught up. Not only this but my tours site is being redone and you know what that entails if you have ever done it before...thankfully I have someone who does know at the other end. Came home to rain, beautiful rain. I say that because we didn't have any from mid December and things were looking a bit thirsty for sure. Now trees are blooming and grass is green and I am happy.

Our Garden Tours Site is where you will find our tour offerings for 2016. The only tour I have left with some space is my South Africa Tour in October now. Since 1998 I have welcomed both new and repeat guests. There is much more so please visit www.gardeningtours.com

Garden Destinations - where you can not only read about public and private gardens all over the world, but you can enter your own favourites for us all to know about and enjoy. Click on the Gardens button in the black bar to go to the area and start entering your favourites! The big banners all take you to various areas as well so check those out too.

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.
