Carolyn Magnani's "Ceres Garden"   in      Johnston, Iowa
As hosts of 2013 NALS Lily Show and Symposium in Iowa, our  Lily Garden Bus Tour took us Carolyn Magnani's
garden which is well-known for it's artful blend of Lilies, trees, bushes and other perennials. This meticulous blend of
plants and garden art leads a visitor thru the shaded pathways and over to a stream and  pond area. The garden is a
created with blue and yellow accents. Our IRLS and NALS attendees found plenty to see here!
Rich hues of blue clematis add vertical interest.
NALS & IRLS visitors enjoyed the well designed garden areas.
