Want to see videos of my garden? Go to www.plantersplace.com - learn my tips for growing clematis, perennials, and more of my favorite plants.
My blue and yellow garden in May. Learn how to have more drama without the drinking problems in your garden. These plants are drought, slug and deer resistant. Many of my talks teach what plants to grow that are the most practical for different climates. Note the blue bird house and blue painted gate in the background. This is because I have trouble growing blue delphiniums - so I use blue paint instead.
This is hydrangea "Blushing Bride" and it pokes through the window in my brick wall - keeps the lovely blooms from flopping on the ground.

This is our favorite place to stay in Italy. It is called La Luna nel Porto in the charming town of Stesa near Milan. Perfect location for exploring a week's worth of world class gardens, wineries and mountains with lake views and a few blocks from town. Large modern rooms, beautiful interiors, professional staff and kitchenettes. They have not asked us to recommend them, nor are we being paid. We just like to share great places to stay in Europe. www.lalunanelporto.it
