      Julie–Nothing tops an English garden in my book, but I have to admit French gardens have a very special magic of their own. This will be my first trip to the Dordogne and I’m so excited. Many say it is the BEST part of France.

      Gloria–Designing this tour was great fun and having the chance to see how other cultures embrace gardening can be an eye-opening experience. But like most things in life, it’s always the people you travel with and the people you meet that make these times unforgettable.
