Destination Gardens


Everyone, young and old, enjoys visiting a garden.  Think about it.  When’s the last time you visited a destination garden that took your breath away?  Just walking into a lovely garden will calm visitors almost immediately.  Additionally, you can gain ideas for your own home garden even on a smaller scale.

Which garden locations would be a destination garden trip for you?

This is my list of favorite destination gardens:
