Presented by Joy Brabston
Join us as we tour the gardens of Great Britain through a slide show presented by Joy Brabston on Tuesday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m. Joy Brabston was among a group guided through the gardens of Great Britain by Dr. Neil Odenwald, Horticultural Specialists. At each location, the group was honored to have the head gardener escort them through the gardens and tell their stories.
You will see through her eyes gardens stretching from England to Scotland to Wales. Some of the gardens that will be shown include: Blenheim, the birthplace of Winston Churchill; the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens; the famous White Gardens at Sissinghurst, Hever, restored by William Waldorf Astor in 1903; and Althorp, the childhood home of Diana, Princess of Wales. Brabston noted that little did the group know when Diana’s father was giving them the tour of the grounds that the lake would be the burial place for his daughter.
Joy and Bryan Brabston are the owners of Linden Plantation Gardens. She is a Master Flower Show Judge, a former president of the Vicksburg Council of Garden Clubs, and a member of the Town and Country Garden Club in Vicksburg.
