Great garden blogs 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.
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.
