Frances Palmer, a member of GARDEN DESIGN's design board, is a well-known potter and a passionate gardener. Today, she shares with us some snapshots from her recent trip to Scotland and its gardens.
Last weekend I was invited to visit my dear friends David Hopkins and David Wilson in Crail, Scotland. It is a small, coastal village on the southern side of the East Neuk of Fife and about 10 miles southeast of St. Andrews. We spent four days looking at castles, country estates, and organic farms. Although the flower and vegetable beds were essentially dormant, the bones of the old walled gardens were visible and stunning.
