    The Sharing Secrets question for July is: 

    ”What is your top ‘Bucket List’ garden (gotta see it before you turn to compost)?”

    Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm & Garden in the Lake District of England (as part of a walking tour of the area).

    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, South Africa, is my dream, but I have grave doubts I'll ever get there.  It's too far to bicycle!

    Butchart Gardens. I'm sure everyone else has been. But I haven't.  Every time I take a trip I think I'll see amazing flowers that we can't grow here.  Not that I've been many places.  Tokyo was all green.  The Peonies were done in Chicago. But when I come home I realize we have the most amazing flowers here in SoCal!!!   Of course I haven't been to Singapore nor Malaysia.  I bet they have incredible flowers!!

    It would have to be Versailles - pictures are one thing, but the size and scope in person have to be pretty amazing...

    Butchart Gardens. It holds the story of the indomitable  human spirit to create beauty in whatever circumstances we find ourselves in: even is a cement pit can be made into a beautiful garden.

    I was lucky enough to cross one off in June -- the International Garden Festival at Chaumont-sur-Loire. (Anyone want to hear about it? The theme this year: the Deadly Sins.)

    Chanticleer comes to mind; also the gardens of Morocco.

    How did everyone else make this post anonymous?

    Oh, they didn't make it anonymous! The names just hadn't loaded. I guess I should add the South African Cape too. Very very far.
