Summer at Chanticleer

Summer at Chanticleer marks the point at which this garden, outstanding in any season, starts to come into its own. For years the talented horticultural staff at the garden, who are given more or less free reign in their individual areas to experiment and change plantings, have sought to push the envelope in terms of zone hardiness, mixing tropicals into more sheltered areas and using them as annuals in others. The Serpentine starts to strut its stuff. The Cutting Garden overflows with offerings for containers inside and outside the Main House as well as the visitors’ restrooms.  This weekend I’m here at the garden, taking part in the current Master Garden Photography Workshop, with Roger Foley. Here’s a sampling of some favorite photos from past summers, in no particular order.

    I just visited Chanticleer last week, after a four-year hiatus. The new beech bridge is something to see, although I enjoyed the colorful bounty of the nearby kitchen and cutting garden. Thanks for sharing your lovely images!
