Liked the garden gate the best.
Oh and if anyone out there is posting photos on your blog, I really, really want to see the Portland gardens I missed. The ones I saw were fabulous and I hear the others were as well.

I have been posting GWA garden tour photos on my blog (Have 3 of the 5 places online so far) but I am really hoping that you visited a few of the ones I missed. I can’t wait to see your photos!
