Tales of a Gardener’s Journey.

Simply relax in your favorite chair, with a warm drink in hand, while you are virtually whisked away to 3 remarkable gardens, each located in a different region of the country. It is a feast for your eyes as you discover the beauty of Teton wildflowers, the festive horticultural sculptures of the Atlanta Botanic Garden display and angorgeous Italian Renaissance garden of historic New England. We’ll delve into each garden's special exhibits, architectural landscaping details, historical facts and botanical nuggets. Because visiting gardens are especially important to us during the pandemic, we will discuss the health and wellness benefits each garden offers and share the research that supports those benefits, so we get the most out of future garden experiences.
