Looking for some inspiration for your next garden design but finding magazines sparse with content let alone fresh ideas, your dog eared gardening books have little that would apply to your landscape, and the gardening forums are.well quiet to say the least. Then you might want to check out the "Smithsonians Horticulture Division" web page where they announced; The Archives of American Gardens (AAG), founded in 1987, offers landscape designers, historians, researchers, and garden enthusiasts to approximately 80,000 photographic images and records that document a wide variety of historic and contemporary gardens throughout the United States. Yes thats right EIGHTY THOUSAND photos and records that are very organized. Enjoy

Katy, many thanks for posting this site. As you were the one to discover this treasure trove I would ask you to post this on the Landscape Design Forum. It ought to keep them out of mischief for awhile.

I browsed some of the photos of the gardens. I wish they were bigger!
