In the last of my Christmas posts tomorrow I'll be adding a list of all gardens seen in 2009, so you can check details if you're thinking of visiting. You may also be interested in looking at my new blog:


  1. Beautiful pictures, love the dark tulips.

  2. Wonderful summary, Charlotte, and (as always) great photos. The Moroccan garden took my breath away. -Jean

  3. Lovely compilation of pictures. You have a very good eye.
    I clicked on your link to The Garden Book of Days and it launched me out into the nether regions of the web cosmos. I realized that the problem was that you forgot one of the dots in the URL. I did find it on my own and it's grand. Can't wait to bask in your garden days.

  4. An exciting calendar! Charlotte thank you for all the fantastic gardens you share! You have an amazing life! Gorgeous photos and gardens as always. Carol

  5. Beautiful pictures! La Majorelle is high on my garden visit wish list...

  6. I know I do not comment as often as I should to be a good "follower" because I am certain to run out of ways to say "WOW". Thank you so much for your reviews of your trips. The photos you post are truly marvelous.

  7. What a lovely post to discover on a cold and snowy night. :) Thanks for sharing.

  8. Charlotte:
    What a fabulous tour! I think the world needs a photographic garden atlas.... perhaps your New year's project, as you seem to be overly qualified to fill the needs! I was stopped dead in my tracks by the Oudolf garden... the man is brilliant!

  9. Thanks Charlotte a lovely calendar

  10. Charlotte,
    I think you should consider having a calendar printed of these amazingly beautiful images you share. I love the photo from Majorelle Gardens, Morocco, and the autumn colours at Sheffield Park, East Sussex. Truly breathtaking. I hope the New Year fills you with happiness, health, and fabulous adventure!!

  11. I think the October shot will always be my favorite. Just gorgeous.

  12. What a wonderful year of garden visting you have had. Planning on visiting Saville Gardens for the azaleas this year from your photos it looks like May might be the best time

  13. I just love that dragonfly art, very cool!
