My mid-winter daydreams often take me back to Holland’s Keukenhof gardens. This is one of the paths I walked along when I was there on an April morning in 2006.

My garden has been frozen and covered with snow since the middle of November. At this point in the winter, I’m so color-deprived that a patch of yellow snow is actually looking sort of interesting.

This is the time of year to put your feet up, close your eyes and bring to mind some of the best gardens you’ve ever visited, whether near or far. If your screen is looking a little dark, no worries! We’ve put together a photo album called “Garden Tours and Travel” that contains pictures from some of the world’s most beautiful gardens.

The photos in this album were contributed by our staff. If you have some of your own “dream garden” photos to share, please upload them into this album. There’s plenty of room to add captions (please do!)
