may 2010 virtual tour: an open day slideshow
RAIN HAD BEEN FORECAST, BUT DIDN’T SHOW. About 250 nice people did (which is actually a pretty quiet tour day here!), and so did a lot of nice plants, who managed in spite of wacky spring weather to hold out for their moment of glory. Second-best to an actual garden visit is a virtual tour, and you’re invited. No excuses! See you there.
Start the slideshow by clicking on the first thumbnail, then toggle from image to image using the arrows beside each caption. Enjoy!
Note: A list of links to profiles of the plants I’ve mentioned is just below the thumbnails, if you want to learn more than I can fit in a caption.
