High on Highgrove


It is said that a garden is a reflection of ones soul. Being a hardcore gardener I seek out inspiration from books, magazines and from the places we visit. Yesterday we toured Prince Charles's gardens at his home, Highgrove in Doughton England. What inspiration! I admire Charles's philosophy about organic gardening and the only thing that could have possible made the day more enjoyable is if we were able to tour his killer composting operation of which I've read about in depth. The gardens were magnificent—grand but not too formal—with touches of humor and whimsy here and there. I was in heaven. Sadly, no photography is allowed here, but here are some tools and a book that I bought to remind me of a spectacular day.
