Like breezy picnics under the stars, the smell of fresh-cut grass, or mojitos on the porch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, flower-filled gardens are one of those things we can’t get enough of in the summer. Ours are still in bloom, but that doesn’t stop us from ogling the many gorgeous gardens around the world. Lately, our go-to source for garden inspiration has been Instagram. We’re especially smitten with these five nature-loving accounts.
| 1. @chateauversaillesYes, that Versailles. They also post photos of the interiors, but the seemingly endless gardens are stunning, especially at this time of year.
|2. @thebutchartgardensThe varied landscapes at this National Historic Site in Victoria, British Columbia, have us ready to pack our bags. For an extended stay.
|3. @thehorticultFrom the eponymous gardening and lifestyle blog comes this design, flower, veggie, and landscape-loving Instagram.
|4. @gardenista_sourcebookIf you love Remodelista and its spin-off, Gardenista, you’ll love the latter’s sleek, design-minded images of outdoorsy spaces and places.
|5. @nybgThe official Instagram of the New York Botanical Garden, with acres of ooh- and ahh-worthy plantings and rare flowers. And with their Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life exhibit on display till November 1, we’re also loving the many Frida-costume selfies and the breathtaking shot of film Frida herself, Salma Hayek, taking a break on the edge of the water lily garden.|
