Greetings from Turkey! Here now with my tour group and seeing so much history. It has been wonderful. The tulips were singing their hearts out for us too! I have been posting pictures on my facebook page almost every day while we are here. Our last few days will be in Cappadocia. My trip to Scotland was just so wonderful. I was there to check things over for a possible garden tour. Where to begin? I am thinking Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Argyll area as those will be in perfect shape for a May 2016 tour. I don't return home from Turkey until the 24th but will keep you entertained with articles up weekly and be sure to follow me on facebook where you will see the latest updates and photos of my tour.

I have but TWO rooms left now on the South Africa tour in October. All the other tours are fully booked. Lots of repeat tour guests and new guests I will have the pleasure to travel with. China Peony Festival Tour 2015 and Singapore/Bali 2015 are booking now. Still working on Chelsea 2015 and Australia 2015 They are all truly extraordinary and hand chosen just for you!

We have two other sites that might also be of interest to you.
Here is the website link to our tours only gardening website!

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.
