Chanticleer is a public garden just outside of Philadelphia. The landscaping is artful, imaginative and inspired. It isn't a curated garden where every plant has a label, but it is beautiful and a marvelous stage for plants. I've been to public gardens all over the world and Chanticleer is among my favorites.

Butchart Gardens located in Brentwood Bay, a village on the Saanich Peninsula that is part of the city of Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island. Butchart Gardens had an interesting genesis. It was originally a limestone quarry worked by Robert Butchart to supply cementum for his pioneer work with Portland Cement. By 1904 helium had deserted one part of the quarry and his wife, Jennie, decided to beautify the exhausted site. I can't wait to see this come summer vacation.
