Garden Tours

Chelsea Flower Show
May 21 - 30 th, 2001

1pt.gif (86 bytes)I am pleased to present this, our fourth Chelsea tour, for your gardening pleasure. I try to include a variety of gardens, both grand and intimate so that you can experience all the beauty that this country has to offer. Although this is but another sampling, I believe you will enjoy them all, for they all have something to offer you! I also have to keep up with the variety of my tours because I have had repeats from the past on each tour!

Hopefully you will see the ‘wolds’ as I have, those rolling pieces of pasture that are so unique to this area…I guarantee you will see lots of sheep! I have been told there are over 30 different breeds of them and have seen many of them myself!
