Courtnay Daniels's 15 acres of gardens in Virginia

Sara Lin, in today's Wall Street Journal, writes: "Courtnay Daniels's backyard is testament to what a very avid gardener with considerable resources can create...In this bucolic area 20 miles west of Jefferson's Monticello, Ms. Daniels has devoted much of the last decade to 15 acres of gardens filled with rare and unusual trees, flowers, grasses and shrubs. There's a rose garden, a vegetable garden, a blue garden and an apricot garden. The orange garden is adjacent to the grass garden, and the yellow garden leads to the canal garden with its two reflecting pools. A five-acre arboretum boasts vast views of the surrounding hills." For the full article that also includes a slideshow, click here. The end of the slideshow includes a note that Ms. Daniels "gives tours of the gardens to about six groups a year."
