We (I was travelling with a friend and colleague) stopped at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden on the way to the Spring Flower Show in Charlotte.
It was a treat. It's a very formal garden, not exactly what I envision for my own garden, but lovely, nontheless.
The Conservatory was remarkable, imaginative and innovative.
The Tillandsia arches are like nothing I've ever seen (nor my friend and colleague) -- and we've visited a LOT of gardens between us.
And the winter elements are lovely -- these Japanese pussy willows are just about perfect at this time of year.
