Neil and Lynn Visit Chandor Gardens

I’ve known Steven Chamblee for many, many years.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, he’s not only a Texas-class horticulturist (that’s better than world-class), he’s also the most gifted horticultural writer I’ve read.

What he and his assistant Toby Mize (with help from Parker County Master Gardeners) have done for Chandor Gardens is at that same high level.  Set on a hillside in Weatherford since portrait artist Douglas Chandor developed his home grounds more than half a century ago, Chandor Gardens is a treasure to behold.  There’s a different vista with each step you take.  Turn around in your tracks, and it’s as if you’re in an entirely different garden.

Douglas Chandor loved garden whimsy.  All through the acreage you’ll see remnants of his creative mind.  Steven and Toby maintain it all, and in doing so, they’re preserving one of Texas’ best-kept secrets so that we all can enjoy it.  Make your plans now to visit Chandor Gardens this spring.
