Chanticleer




Tea Cup Garden planter bed.

I visited Chanticleer in Wayne, Pa for the first time in May.



I can truthfully say I have never seen a more beautiful garden.  The use of color and texture is breathtaking.  In the large gardens, there is a subtle beauty with repeating colors drawing your eye along.  The smaller beds contain more than a few surprises. The gardens flow from area to area. 



I took a few pictures but there is no way I could capture the creative artistry that is Chanticleer.  I hope to go back soon to take in more of the design artistry.

Thanks for the pictures - yours are the first 'real' photos of the place I have seen. This is on my 'gardens I want to visit' list.

Swimray,
It is definitely worth the time to take a tour and then spend some time taking in the exquisitely designed gardens.

I love that Flowers has integrated our natural world into our technological world. In my own opinion, it is this kind of imagination and creativity that will help create an environment that embraces both elements to build a more harmonious world. Delhi Flowers
