Garden siteseeing in California

As part of our weekly visits to gardeners around the Web, we're headed to California this week.

First stop, San Francisco and Philip's Garden Blog, which is elegant and interesting. It's a treat to tag along with Philip Bewley as he visits wonderful gardens -- in nearby Sausalito one time, in Mexico or Rome another.

I've enjoyed -- and learned from -- his series of postings on garden retreats. And the discussion of San Francisco's gardens is better than many guidebooks I've seen. All are accompanied by copious photos of outstanding quality.

Debra Prinzing, author of "Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways" (among other books), is recently transplanted from Seattle to southern California.

At Shed Style, she writes about her interests -- architecture (including landscape architecture, of course), garden travels (she's an excellent interviewer, so you learn about the creator of the garden as well as the plants), and such things as circles in gardens., which was fascinating.
