Garden Destinations: Yew Dell Garden, KY

Yew Dell gardens Louisville KY on www.pithandvigor.com
I’m finding plenty of inspiration at Yew Dell Gardens in Louisville, KY — and I haven’t even been there.  There is a Tobacco barn which has me off on a design tangent (did you know that all tobacco barns have three things? – gabled roofs, frame construction, and some system of ventilation -and from those basic tenants, designs can get pretty interesting).

Yew Dell has converted a Tobacco barn into a visitor center that is notably modern despite its historical roots.

The site has other interesting architecture (both new and old) and it a place that the Garden Conservancy helped to establish as a public resource after a long history as a private estate garden and nursery.

I am jealous of their Muhlenbergia capillaris (Pink Muhly grass — I so crave a whirl of pink frothiness! — but I think I am just a zone too cold).

Have you visited this garden?  What inspired you in this place?

    If you are ever in that area, seeing the Yew Dell Gardens in person is a real treat. And the tobacco barn that has been revamped is amazing!!
