Being an avid gardener, I decided to check this out with my husband during an anniversary get away. Such an amazing surprise. What Ted -Weber has accomplished in his 2 plue acres is absolutely incredible. I don't know how he keeps up with all the gardens in his 80s. This is definitely worth going out of the way for. The storybook home that Ted grew up in is very unique in today's terms and Ted really made life in that home come alive in his telling. He definitely has experienced an interesting life and shared a number of his experiences meeting and hosting some well-known individuals. I'd love to see the gardens in June at their peak and before the hot weather hits. If you enjoy gardens, this is a must see. We may just have to go back.

If you are a gardener you must go to see Ted at Weber house. He is owner and head gardener of the 2 acres here. His knowledge and vision are inspiring at that very least. Ted is very personable and shares his many stories. We were in awe of his amazing life and friends. As pet owners we understood his love for his cat Luther, & his patients for his sisters 2 cats. This was an inexpensive way to learn more about gardening.

Ted Weber gives fascinating tours of his childhood home that is now decorated to tell the stories of famous people he knew. The 2 1/2 acre garden is a labor of love. Definitely stop to see this.
