  1. I wish I could see more of the other gardens, but it is difficult to leave mine. I did get a sneak preview of some and I noticed that everything seems to be at least TWO WEEKS–maybe 3–behind, in terms of development. In late July, that is a very good thing. For example, my trumpet lilies are still in bloom. Most unusual. It’s very fresh and green for this time of year.

  2. Looking forward to having you all here! Gardeners are out in force this week in final prep for the Walk so it looks good when you get here.

    I too, will have lilies still in bloom. Usually, the morning of Garden Walk, the last petal falls off the last one.
