One of the best things about my job is that I've been able to visit a number of public and private gardens over the years...and pretend that it's all in the line of duty. I've even been able to convince people around here that it's part of my job description. At this point I've amassed a collection of quite a few images, so for those that are interested, I'd like to share. There are many thousands of images that need to be reviewed, resized, and captioned... so this is very much a work in progress! Note: there are more images and additional information on Our Online Catalog Pages.

The first garden I'd like to feature is Chanticleer, one of my all time favorites. Located in Wayne, PA ... outside Philadelphia. This is the former estate of the Rosengartens, beautifully maintained, like you imagine an estate garden must have been lovingly cared for early in the last century.

In the summer of 2008 I was able to attend the first ever Salvia Summit held at Cabrillo College, near Santa Cruz, CA. They have one of the largest Salvia collections anywhere. These are some images of the extensive Salvia gardens there.

This is an index to some of the 1000s of plant images I've taken over the years. Files open in a separate window on the Google Picasa website. When you get to the Picasa site if you click on a thumbnail it will open a larger image. From there if you click "Full Screen" in the upper left corner it will open an even larger image. There is also an optional slideshow.
