Paradise in Mill Valley: Garden Conservancy Open Days

Sneak Peek!
The Garden Conservancy 'Open Days' Program takes place on Saturday, June 16th in 
Marin County.


The magical Mill Valley paradise created by artist/photographer Don Worth will be one of the gardens opening to the public, allowing for a rare opportunity to visit a unique West Coast landscape.

In the days ahead, I'll be writing an in-depth feature on Alice's Garden Travel Buzz:  Drop by to see a photo portfolio of the garden and learn more about Worth's exceptional vision.

You'll not want to miss the chance to wander this lush landscape if you are anywhere in the vicinity of the Bay Area on the 16th of June.

  2. Oh, to be able to "drop by", see those gardens, then end the day with sipping wine and wearing a sweater!

    1. Hello Breathtaking,
      Not sure why you've had problems leaving a comment.
      The blue-purple flowering plant is Echium!
      Here's a link with info:
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Echium

  5. Thank you so much for the info:)I love gardening, but there are so many conifers in my garden that the network of roots invade the flower beds and it's become quite a problem.The Echium however seems to do well even under these circumstances, and also withstands long periods of drought.

    I'm sure to learn a lot more from your gardening blog so as from today have become your latest follower, and will try to visit as often as I can.
    Warmest Regards.
