To borrow a Shakespeare phrase, it has been a foul and fair year. Some health issues interrupted the summer, but fortunately all has been resolved.
Despite missing out on a good part of our gardening season (and a few other foul bits), we've had some pretty terrific moments in 2015. Here are a few highlights.
Wishing you all the best for 2016.
|We started building a new rose bed in February|
|My rare Shortia bloomed in April|
|I was back judging the Biltmore International Rose Trials in May|
|And back at our friend's gorgeous mountaintop rose garden in June|
|The critter cam on our trail caught some surprise visitors|
|We flew to England in September to attend Chris Naval Academy Reunion|
|We visited the Garden Museum in London|
|And saw amazing Joe Pye Weed at Savill Garden outside London|
|At the reunion|
|I toured the Queen's Garden at Buckingham Palace for an article on pollinators|
|Windsor Castle at night|
|Back home in time for a gorgeous fall in our mountains|
Happy New Year, friends!
