May meeting of Georgia Perennial Plant Association.
This is the first in a new annual series presented in memory of Barbara Allen, a past president of GPPA. Barbara understood the connection between art and horticulture and shared that knowledge without reservation.
Ryan Gainey, Georgia’s most renowned garden designer, inaugurates this seies. His theme derives from poet James Terry White, who wrote, “The heart is a garden; remembrance is its sweetest flower.” If one is fortunate, Ryan believes, one’s garden is filled with memories of people and places, embodied in the garden’s plants, design and fittings. These remembrances keep our memories ever present. He’ll share stories and memories of the people, plants and places that have influenced him. An event not to be missed!
