Chelsea 2017 was my 22nd visit there...and it never fails to amaze. Every gardener should make this pilgrimage at least once. I have been taking small groups there on my garden tours to not only enjoy this show but to experience great gardens in England. We had a wonderful tour with all of us coming home with such great memories of perfect weather and new found friends. I am home now until my tour to South Africa so will take a breather, relax and enjoy each day as it comes. It is our green season here in Panama and I love it..when it does rain it is warm, the birds are everywhere and many plants and trees are in bloom. I hope you are following me on facebook so you can see what I am up to here in Panama and on my travels.

My tours are fully booked for this year but on the tours site you will start to see what is coming for 2018.

Tours so far for 2018 are Colombia early 2018, Spain in March, China in April and Chelsea in May and I am thinking about Japan. Let me know if you wish to be notified when ready for booking.

Our Panama site is at WhyPanama.net Moving to a tropical country from Zone 3a in Alberta was sure some kind of adjustment, but one that we are so thankful we did. It has opened up a whole new world of plant material and article opportunities for me.
