    Les Jardins de Quatre-Vents Before Your Eyes
    We came prepared having watched The Gardner twice and read Cabot's book. We got off to a rocky start when we realized that we signed up for the French tour, as did 8 English only speakers of the 12 in our group, and a bit taken aback at the extent of the house renovation at the tour of the grounds start. Some flowers were in bloom and it was suggested that we try next year for a July tour (but I imagine it would just be too hot and humid then), besides the garden is so lush and well balanced. The tour takes 2 hours and winds through the garden, highlighting Cabot's design (a major reason for getting a tour in a language you understand). A few areas near the Japanese garden were a bit tough and we wondered whether walking poles would be allowed. At the end of the tour, there is a small table with postcards and a book signing. Parking is well marked at the start. I am glad to have seen the garden in person and in awe of the reality of Cabot's vision.

    Don’t use Google Maps to get there!
    Google maps sent us 20 km out of the way to camp in the woods. Hence we arrived late for our tour. We’re lucky we only were a few minutes late and joined a small group. Make sure you bring water on a hot day. Be careful walking on the Japanese Garden steps,they are bit treacherous. The place is truly beautiful!

Wanted to see this SOOOO Bad, but had to cancel trip due to medical emergency. We'd planned a trip all the way from Portland, Oregon to Quebec for this once in a life time chance. Willing to let go of these tix for half-price ($50 US)
