What do I like about Gordon? Plenty, but here are the key reasons I signed up for the Inspired Gardener symposium presented by the Atlanta Botanical Garden and the Georgia Perennial Plant Society: Gordon knows and lives his topic (through an extensive garden of his own), he is a polished and forthright communicator, and he doesn’t believe in trade secrets.
Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, the program as a whole got very high marks from this seasoned symposium-goer. Tres Fromme, Design and Planning Manager of the Botanical Garden entertained and informed with a high-energy presentation on designing for the senses, while Parker Andes from Biltmore, Jason Reeves from University of Tennessee, and garden expert Rita Randolph covered their topics with panache.
So, without further ado, here are a handful of pics from a very special but wet day at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
