Sightings at Juniper Level Botanic Gardens at Plant Delights Nursery

An early morning, quiet visit to Tony Avent’s open house at Plant Delights Nursery and surrounding gardens of Juniper Level Botanic Gardens, inspired me to evaluate  my plant pallet.  Before I knew it, my early morning was late morning and I was late for an appointment.  The lingering was worth it.  It was the perfect morning to admire the gardens.  These scenes were my inspiration.
