For the last ten years or more, my husband and I have attended the annual Father’s Day Garden Tour, sponsored by Asheville GreenWorks. Having no children of our own and both of our fathers deceased, it has become our tradition. The tour is always spectacular and proceeds support a great cause – plantings and community beautification. This year’s event included ten gardens in Biltmore Forest. Being, literally, in a forest, most of the gardens were shade gardens. Each one we strolled through was breathtaking.
The featured garden was that belonging to actress, Andie MacDowell. Her charming “storybook home” is surrounded by lush rose, vegetable, herb and water gardens.
