I spend a good bit of time at the close of each year editing travel photos so I can share the best with those who joined me on the trip. Here are a dozen favorites from the West Country Gardens tour, June 7-17.
There are many things I look for when visiting gardens, but I’m most interested in how they relate to the home and their surrounding landscape. When reviewing my photos as a whole, I’m often struck by how many focus on those relationships.
As you can see, our visit to Wiltshire, Somerset, and Dorset was fabulous, and our foray into Wales was equally exciting. We also squeezed in a visit to Highgrove House, exploring the Gloucestershire garden of HRH Prince Charles. Sadly, photos are not allowed at Highgrove.
Do you have a favorite among the group?
I’ll be visiting gardens in the Netherlands and Belgium in May. If you would like to travel with me or consult my schedule for an independent visit, you can examine the full itinerary here.
