Garden paths: the beauty of public gardens

Garden Variety readers!
Here's a sneak preview of my Sunday story in the Travel section of The Baltimore Sun. We chose 10 public gardens -- show-stoppers and little gems -- to visit in the region: From Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania to George Washington's River Farm in Virginia.
We give you tips on how to get there and what you'll see, as well as a brief introduction to each garden and its history.
And, we've put together a spectacular slide show of photographs from these gardens, as well as a link to Cheval Opps, a retired IBM executive who now has her dream job -- arranging garden tours for groups.
