How absolutely fabulous Kathy! wonderful gardens and wonderful people touring the gardens. Looks like it was very cool there by the amount of fleece I see the Idyllers sporting.

I absolutely love the swaths of color in photo #13. Are those heathers? So very beautiful.

Thanks for taking the time to share these great images.

I think I could live the rest of my life quite happily in a shack placed where SunnyD is standing in your slide show, Saucy! Wow.

The ocean shots look very familiar to me, though the perspective is different. Also, the rock formations are not like those across the street... much more volcanic in appearance. But the character of the water is the same. Bet it's cold!

What a lovely, leisurely trip through Fantasyland, Saucy! (really wish I'd been able to go).

I love seeing these pictures. It looks like there have been a great many changes since I was an intern there 7 years ago and I am really hoping to make a trip up there this year.

The garden terrace leading into the perennial garden is quite different. It used to be a wooden deck that over looked the garden but was not as inviting. The entrance was down a path to the left through the old nursery (which I believe also moved).

I commented in Saucy's album about the private garden. That is the old farmhouse that I lived in for 6 months while I was there. The tree fern by the front door has grown huge!
