Floral Designer and Master Judge for The Garden Club of America and National Garden Club, Inc.





Sunken Gardens Lincoln, Nebraska
This garden is one of Lincoln's finest gems. It is incredibly well-kept, colorful and lush in such a surprising place. The garden is a floral marvel with beautiful ponds and lily pads in the middle of gorgeous displays of the most colorful flowers. Lincoln Parks renovated this Depression era garden in 2005



Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Comprised of 132 acres of natural wetlands, wood lands, meadows and display gardens, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is a year-round experience with indoor tropical, arid, carnivorous, Victorian and seasonal gardens, changing sculpture galleries and exhibitions by international artist, and outdoor acreage featuring a Sculpture Park, Children's Garden, Michigan's Farm Garden, amphitheater for summer concerts, nature trails and boardwalks.


Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland, Oregon
Lan Sun is an elegant Chinese scholar's garden occupying a compact city block in Old Town/Chinatown, Portland. The architecture and landscaping create spaces within spaces. Its winding paths lead to breathtaking landscapers at seemingly every turn, and a profusion of latticed window frame an infinite number of views.


Chanticleer Gardens, Wayne, Pennsylvania
This estate dates from the early 20th century when Adolph Rosengarten and wife built this estate as a country retreat. This year Chanticleer is celebrating their centennial as the Rosengarten estate and 20th year as public garden. You can enjoy more than 30 acres of sights, textures, flowers and vegetables at Chanticleer Gardens. This 'please garden' was created to illustrate the beauty of the art of horticulture.


Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, Boylston, Massachusetts
We are fortunate to have this 132 acre botanical garden near us with spectacular views of Mount Wachusett and the Wachusetts Reservoir. It was founded in 1986 by the Worcester County Horticultural Society and scheduled to be fully complete in 2040. The Systematic Garden, the Orangerie, the new Limonaia and Winter Garden are a few of the most popular features.


Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Barter's Island Road, Boothbay, Maine
From the saltwater shoreline to the accessible Lerner Garden of the Five Senses, you will discover the many sights, scents and sounds that make up the 248 acres of gardens. The doors were open to the public in 2007 following a dream that grew from a small organization in 1991. All of the garden rooms are spectacular - Children's Garden, Haney Hillside Garden, Giles Rhododendron Garden, Rose and Perennial Garden, Fairy Garden, and Sculptures throughout. William Cullina is now the Executive Director.
