Almost time to see Chanticleer Garden!

Of ALL the public gardens I’ve ever visited (too many to count), Chanticleer Garden near Philadelphia is my favorite – and lots of other garden writers say the same thing.  So I’m posting today to encourage readers to join Behnkes, Washington Gardener Magazine and Cheval’s Garden Tours on our trip to Chanticleer Garden and Nemours Mansion and Gardens on September 21, 2011.  The deadline to sign up is September 18.

You’ve seen two awesome photos from the garden in this review of Chanticleer, a Pleasure Garden by the Washington Post garden writer Adrian Higgins, and the photo above is one more by Rob Cardillo, who collaborated with Higgins on the book.

The rest of these photos are by an amateur – me.  Chanticleer is always changing, so even returning visitors see something new each time.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
