Montrose Gardens


Montrose Gardens
Originally uploaded by linfrye
Last Tuesday as part of the Arboretum's Lecture Series, we brought a group of 15 to a 60 acre (45 developed) private garden in Hillsborough, NC -- Montrose Gardens. What a GLORIOUS place!!!! From huge trees, to evergreens, to shade gardens, to native plants to HUGE poppies that danced and bobbed in the gentle wind, to sunlit fowered cutting gardens -- this place was absolutely MAGICAL!!!!

Here is one view of the gardens -- lots of pink poppies, some euphorbias (yellow/green) and purple verbena ...

We had such a grand time, we're planning for another garden tour VERY SOON! What a delight!
