I showed this on lilies, but since you all know her here, it bears repeating, I think.

Debilu, her sister, and I went to Jo Ann's for a garden tour and lunch. I know everyone's seen pictures of her gardens, but in person they are simply amazing.

It really was beautiful, and Polly is right, the fragrance was wonderful. I just wish we could have stayed longer, had to run to the hospital.

Great job Jo Ann! You have worked hard! And it helps to have an artist's eye!
I take it you don't have the red lily beetles.

Thanks Allison,

Jo Ann's gardens are a joy, as is she. I've been to her home twice. The first time I was amazed at how large her gardens were. I'd seen pictures, but seeing the overall garden is quite amazing.
