During my recent escapade to Philadelphia to attend the Seed Your Future board meeting, I was able to visit Chanticleer in the offseason. I love seeing a garden in each of the four seasons, and winter was one I hadn't witnessed at Chanticleer.
If you haven't been to this pleasure garden in Wayne, PA, most horticulturists will tell you it is in their top ten favorites. For me, I'm mesmerized each visit by how the gardeners weave creativity into plantings of both ordinary and extraordinary flora. Even with the dearth of many flowers, forbs, and foliage, the garden still looked stellar. Below are photos with comments along the way.
