May 21, 2012 by Sandra Jonas CONNOISSEURS GARDEN TOUR 2 To continue the garden tour… all were meticulously appointed… lushly planted pots… with a Belgian Fence as background, below… a private putting green that can double as a Bocce Court! The best treatment for a driveway and large parking court… antique cobbles in asphalt… Beautiful side door… A Mediterranean style home deserves a Mediterranean style courtyard, below. Then there was THE GARDENER…. I’m told he never stops working nor has he ever asked for a raise! Below, the no maintenance garden… Interesting treatment for steps…. and finally one of my favorite gardens, below… There is a marvelous screened porch…. overlooking a stunning English Knot garden. Admittedly, I did not get to all the gardens. There were eleven gardens on the two-day tour and I saw only nine, in one day. I strongly suggest this annual tour held on Mother’s Day weekend to benefit The Atlanta Botanical Garden. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
