You Know You’re A Garden Geek When…


GardenOn.BillThomasFB…you are OVERCOME with giddiness because the Head Gardener / Executive Director of your favorite (and one of the most amazing) public gardens likes your Facebook post. For the non-gardening set, think getting a nod from your favorite celebrity – like Madonna, or maybe George Clooney?

Anyway, I’m psyched. Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, PA is a must see. An incredibly creative and dedicated staff of gardeners lives and works there, and I have yet to experience a more artistic, exciting interpretation of what a garden can be or how plants can be used. It’s mind-blowing.

Thanks, Bill Thomas. You made my night!

Photos are from my visit to Chanticleer in 2009. For more information about the garden, visit their website, and be sure to check out the new book from Timber Press “The Art of Gardening: Design Inspiration and Innovative Planting Techniques from Chanticleer” written by the Chanticleer gardeners and R. William Thomas, available online from Amazon.
