I love to tour other gardeners’ gardens. That is one of the things I love about this blog world. I can see what and how people are growing things and what they are harvesting. I get a lot of inspiration from it. I have a couple beautiful gardens along my commute. I currently am suffering from major tomato envy from one garden along my drive that has knee-high, full tomato plants that are loaded with blooms.
We got the privilege of touring the beautiful gardens at the Arkansas Governor Mansion recently. JQ was invited to attend an Honors breakfast with the governor along with all the top academic achieving high seniors in the state.
The mansion was beautiful. The flower and rose gardens were breath-taking. Farmer Rick and I found ourselves wondering toward the vegetable garden at the back of the property. It was a lovely raised bed garden. The design and use of space was amazing. It was planted full of early Spring vegetables. The garden gates said it was cared for by local master gardeners.
If you too love to tour gardens, check back on my blog. I will be touring Garden Designer, P. Allen Smith’s garden home in early June. I’ll be sharing my tour with you. His vegetable garden is amazing and absolutely packed full of wonderful plants.
