This year with more time on my hands, I've had greater opportunity to visit the gardens of fellow NARGS members. Each visitation is such an eye-opening learning experience that I thought I should start this thread to document some that I have visited, to share with you those elements that I found most inspiring. I encourage other NARGS forumists to post their garden visit experiences too, highlighting positive impressions or memorable things learned.
Do not be intimidated by the length of my first 6-part entry in this "Garden Visits" thread, your post to "Garden Visits" could be as simple as a single message, sharing one inspirational element that struck you most about a particular garden. Photos are of course welcome, but it is recommended you get friendly consent from the person visited, and please, only mention garden location in generic terms, such as "northwestern Connecticutt", or the "Puget Sound area of Washinton", as appropriate.
