We went to Chanticleer Garden on Mother's Day, a place of incredible, quirky beauty. It feels like a series of garden "rooms" and each one you enter is even more astonishing than the last. Or at least, each astonishes and delights you in a different way. It is not just the rare horticultural specimens, like this green dogwood, but the artistry and subtle humor with which the gardens are designed. Absolutely my cup of tea, garden-wise.
For some reason, we had never gone there at precisely this time of year. So the whole experience was even more astonishing than ever. It seemed almost like an entirely different place.
