Description

At the Garden Conservancy, we believe that the best way to learn about gardens and to appreciate them is to simply spend more time in them. We strive to provide you with an open invitation to explore first-hand examples of outstanding design and horticultural practice that are growing in America's gardens.Since 1995, the Garden Conservancy's Open Day's Program has unlocked the gates to hundreds of America's private gardens by working with volunteers coast to coast to coordinate schedules, collect information, and get it to you. Many of these gardens are rarely, if ever, otherwise open to the public.This book is your open invitation to these Open Days treaures."Open Days garden visiting is the best way to divine the endless possibilities of combining plants, appreciating style, and sensing moods evoked by a clever garden designer: serenity, romance, excitement, humor... More than 350 gardens will open their gates this year, the beginning of this new decade, and I invite you to join us, whether for the first time or the fifteenth. Pass through a gate, meander down a path, hear birdsong, smell sage and rose, admire, learn, and meet new friends."---Judy M. Horton Garden designer Los Angeles Open Days Regional Representative 2001-2005
