A Visit With Robert in Tropical Paradise

Outside the TPIE 12 Event in Sunny Florida

It isn’t often I get to visit some of my gardening friends I know only through social networking. I must admit I feel we have been close friends for a long time as we connect on #gardenchat  sharing daily what we love most.  It is a true blessing to meet up with my garden network friends at garden events and on that rare occasion I actually get to tour their personal garden. In January of this year I was a guest of Costa Farms at the TPIE12 event that took place in Fort Lauderdale Florida. What a treat to be surrounded by the amazing growers who make many gardens come alive throughout the States not to mention the world. One evening in between photographing and networking the show, the talented tropical paradise grower Robert Bornstein whisked me away to his amazing hideaway not far from the coast in Florida.

Robert will be sharing in a free seminar today at the #GSS12 event .  This is a free webinar featuring many of our favorite growers.  You can find out more about this event by visiting Corona Tools Website.

It was getting dark … but I was able to snap a few images from my visit to one of the most energizing gardens I’ve visited in the south. Roberts garden is real, practical and totally creative and it is an honor to be able to share it with you in the collection below.  If you can not view this album please visit the link : Picasa Web Album by BGgarden.com
