Diversity of GOY members marvelous gardens- Part1

Little bit of nostalgia.
I thought I will do this blog of early entries to GOY website which caught my eye at one time or other. There are many.
These are pictures from 2007 to 2010 (approximately) and I do not put names as most of these members are not around any more but their awesome and diverse gardens are still with us. I only mentioned names of people who still occasionally post here.

Images of 50 incredible gardens posted here in the past.

I could not pick my favourite from this selection. I would be happy to plug myself in any of these with cup of coffee.
Some most-likely look very different now, a decade later.

Wonderful research,K...the gardens are awe-inspiring...what a pity most of those members are not on here anymore.

So many lovely gardens, they are wonderful and thanks for taking the time to find them all for us to see.
It's what you do with what you've got that's good though.

My goodness, there's some 'sock-pulling-up' to be done round here! What an inspiring selection, Klahanie, and every one with its own atmosphere. Thank you for taking the time and the trouble to post.

A really lovely idea Klahanie … thank you for taking the trouble. I recognise number two as Spritzhenry’s (which I was lucky to visit many years ago). What an impressive and inspiring group of very special gardens.

Added to favourites 🙂. x

Thank you Meadowland, Hywel, Anget and Sheila for your nice comments,
I had links to these saved and thought that present GOY members could enjoy to see these.

I think the NO.42 is Spritzhenry’s also. She had a wonderful garden and you are fortunate that you were able to see it in real life Sheila. I have a picture of your old garden saved as well . I loved it. Were you able to see it since you moved?

No.41 is Oliveoil's garden....Karen's mother.

I loved our old garden too, Klahanie, but no, I haven’t seen it since we moved.

20 Dec, 2021

 

These are inspirational gardens and have been a real joy to look at.

Thank you for putting this together for us. It was very enjoyable.

Thank you Wildrose for your kind words. I am glad you enjoyed these garden pictures.

21 Dec, 2021

 

Wow! What lovely gardens you have shown us!
Such talented people! I think no. 42 was Olive Oil's garden. She unfortunately is not on here now.
I couldn't pick out one either as they are all absolutely amazing!
Thank you for sharing and a Happy Christmas to you!

Thank you Khalanie for doing the research. Im going to add this to Favourites and then I can look at it at my leisure during the cold winter days. There are plenty of brilliant ideas in these beutiful gardens.

Thank you Rose and Siris for your nice comments.
Merry Christmas.

Thank you for posting this have enjoyed it very much. I do not join in much as my garden days are all but over(age) and have not much to contribute but I do appreciate all the blogs members do and still gives me dreams in the mind!!

wonderful blog Klahanie. I have also been to Spritzhenry's garden and it is truly wonderful.
so much inspiration to take on board. It must have been hours of research.

22 Dec, 2021

 

This has been wonderful to see,Klahanie,and I recognise a few too,but can't put a name to the talented Gardeners who took these Photo's of their beautiful Gardens. If I had half of their talent and imagination,I'd be very happy :o)
Thank you so much for putting it all together for us,and I wish you a very Happy Christmas.xx

Thank you SBG, they are some really nice gardens posted here.
I would like to thank you for your contribution to a question section.I learned few things I did not know.

Bloomer, you are way too modest. I think your borders looks as good as any of these. Very beautiful. Happy Christmas to you and your family.
