Elisabeth Zander blogs on the Young's Aberdeen Garden
« on: October 20, 2013, 10:54:38 AM »
Our friend Elisabeth  Zander, from Goshen Connecticut visited the the UK in June - we were so pleased that she was able to spend time travelling in Scotland.
She has contributed photos of the new RBGE  Tufa house for the forum and blogged about Ian Christie and his meconopsis in her super "Seedaholic Times" blog.

There is now  more from Elisabeth on her Scottish visit.... this time she writes of visiting our garden in Aberdeen  ;)

 Elisabeth was a wonderful guest - the pleasure of having such a keen plantsperson visit is immense and we had many other things in common which really made for a delightful time for us. Hope she calls again soon. Ian has just had the very good fortune to spend a couple of days with Elisabeth and Rod in Goshen  - the lucky devil!

Good report and  lovely garden.  I follow Ian's bulb log with great enthusiasm and thought I knew what the Young's garden looked like but not so. A different eye behind the lens see a different picture. Very interesting.
