Going through my photo library recently I realized that I’ve gone to some absolutely thrilling garden destinations in the past few years, and want to share these special locations with you.
As a member of GWA: The Association For Garden Communicators, I try to attend each of their annual meetings. These gatherings always combine a trade show of garden plants and products, talks about communication and business skills, and visits to gardens. Best of all, every year the meetings are held in a different section of the USA or Canada. So every symposium allows me to get inspired and better informed about plants and gardens, and visit some very special places as well.
I want to share four of those lovely destinations with you in the next four posts. If you are planning a trip to Québec City, Canada; Pittsburgh, PA; Pasadena, CA; or Atlanta, GA, these are four beautiful, must-see gardens to add to your itinerary.
Today’s post is of pictured taken in 2013 when GWA visited Québec City. All I can say is that you have to go. It is one of the most charming small cities on the planet. Lovely architecture, great restaurants and friendly people. And a short distance away, you can visit the Île d’Orléans, an area known for it’s agritourism. Small farms and orchards are open to the public, and you can drive around the area sampling delicious food and drink. Here are some of the things on Île d’Orléans, that caught my eye.
We stopped at L’Art au Jardin in the afternoon.
