Went to a Garden Party

This weekend 9News garden expert Rob Proctor opened up his home and garden as a benefit for the Dumb Friends League.  Tour a garden for my favorite cause?  You bet!

The house was built in 1905.  The front of the house has a "wild" garden.  The interior is utterly charming, in the style of A Brit in Tennessee (click here).

In the back, beauty abounds.

There are flower beds,

garden structures,

lots of cozy seating

and pots.
Lots and lots of pots.

Our host served refreshments and answered gardening questions.
The main question?
How many pots in your garden, Mr. Proctor?


Sorry about the fuzzy photos.  My little point-and-shoot camera is having trouble focusing.

Hmmm, I guess I need to consider more pots!
I saw info about the tour in our publication from the Botanic Gardens. Oh, how I wish we had taken the time to go.

Hi Terry!
What a beautiful old house! Love "wild" garden and all these flowers are stunning.
Wow! 700 pots in the garden is just great. I guess the owner have much work to care of all them.
Thanks for your gorgeous photos.
