There were many sponsors for our Fling, each contributing in some way. If you were lucky enough to get to Asheville early enough on Thursday, the first stop was an open house at Sow True Seed.
|Mikey giving us a guided tour through the facility.|
|Inside the cold room. The seed organization is incredible.|
|Not only a guided tour of the facility, we also got some great munchies!|
We had a meet and greet that evening...so many people!! It was hard to know who everyone was. This weekend was going to be amazing.
The first garden was a short bus ride away...
It was an interesting garden. It was sort of Alice in Wonderland meets......um, The Grave Digger? This garden had some of the most interesting artwork throughout the grounds. The owners, Damaris and Ricki Pierce, are artists, each putting their unique touch in the garden and together they have created Wamboldtopia.
Come along on a journey through this magnificent garden....
|Whimsy at its finest|
|Address plaque, love the leaves|
|Curious metal objects add to the interest in the landscape|
|The gargoyles keep watch over those who enter|
|Up the steps into a magical treat|
|Love these colors, Rose Campion, Lychnis coronaria|
|Blue Fescue nestled in with some pottery|
|Raindrops on Roses...(Rose Campion)|
|Strong Women are EVERYWHERE!|
|Love is in the air...?!!?|
|Garden Gnomes beware!|
Stay tuned for our next stop....Christopher Mello's Garden.
