Visiting the Gardens of My Friend, Jim Klinko

Garden tours are a wonderful way to celebrate the season - and if you're able to visit one and still adhere to social distancing guidelines, I know you'll enjoy it.

Not long ago, my friend and owner of Furniture on Consignment in Westport, Connecticut, told me his garden was blooming wonderfully this year, and that I should take a look - the roses, clematis, hydrangeas, phlox, hibiscus, petunias, and so many other plants and flowers were thriving and filling his yard with gorgeous color. Jim mentioned one garden in particular - one he designed and planted in memory of my late sister, Laura Plimpton, who passed away six years ago today. Jim and Laura were close friends and shared a deep appreciation for gardening.
