Garden Tours - Jimmy Williams

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of touring Jimmy Williams' garden in Paris, TN.  Most of us at MAMG are familiar with this garden; Jimmy has been a guest speaker both at our meetings and at Spring Fling.  But seeing it in person is pretty special.

Non Nobis Solum - "Not for Us Alone"

'Silver Mist' Deodor Cedar

Garden rooms are around every corner

What's around this curve?

And this one?

The plant combinations are wonderful.

The views are amazing.
There's something for everyone...

A bright, colorful border...
A woodland path...

Classical garden art...

And whimsy.
This little guy followed us around!

And orange!
Thanks to Jimmy for opening his garden and to Dan Dziekonski for being our tour guide.  You may be able to see them at the Southeast Conifer Society Conference on October 10-11 at Memphis Botanic Garden.
