I'd heard of Chanticleer as being one of the pretty gardens in the Delaware Valley, but I'd never been there. I had no idea how to get there, but it's not too terribly far off the Main Line, in Delaware County. It was about a forty-five minute drive to there from where the garden club meets.
There were banana plants there in big pots, asters, there'd been fields of sunflowers -- a maze? -- hardy begonias, double colchicums, helianthus, toadlily, and much more.
