European Inspiration!

Wednesday, June 14, 2017    
Program:  Exploring London's World-Famous Royal Horticulture Society Chelsea Flower Show
Presented by: Laura Opsahl, Washington County Master Gardener

Our meeting today included a pictorial tour of some of the most beautiful gardens in Europe:  the incredible complexities of gardens and the use of plants, trees and shrubs at the Palace of Versailles was just one.  The color palettes included in the various gardens of Monet were captured in photos that clearly showed where some of the artists inspiration came from.  Finally, pictures taken of the the striking displays at the Chelsea Flower Show provided many ideas and seeds of inspiration for color, creativity and style variation.  

Laura toured these gardens last year as part of a group through Insight Vacations.
