6 Gardens

Lupines and poppies in Bishop’s Garden in Ushuaia, Argentina.

Budget Travel just posted 38 Gorgeous Gardens in Bloom. So many pretty gardens to add to my list of places to enjoy wine & cheese! Here are my 6 favorites…my #1 is from Hampton Court Palace. I’d love to picnic underneath those shady MUSHROOM shaped trees!

Hampton Court Palace

Blossoms at the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Kauai, Hawaii

Skagit Valley tulips, Washington State

Lake Killarney National Park, Ireland

Do you get really into plants in the summertime? I keep orchids in my dining room and a cactus in my kitchen year round, but have been trying to think of a cute way to grow herbs on my windowledge…

The precious, little eggling looks and feels like an extra large egg, but crack its top and discover a garden ready to grow! Cultivation is easy — seeds are already sown into eggling’s fortified peat mixture, just crack it’s top (by tapping on it with a spoon), water and place in bright spot. Plants grow for up to five months in the eggling, after which it can be planted directly in soil.

What do you think? Sounds like fun!
