8. I'm only familiar with the Duke Gardens

in Hillsborough, New Jersey, but I don't know if it's still open.

Years ago, I brought some elderly German relatives there for a visit - Germans are almost as fanatical as the English when it comes to their gardens. None of them spoke a single word of English, so I went along to translate. Fortunately for me, all of the aunts and uncles recognized almost all of the flowers, because my vocabulary of horticultural German was woefully thin and I didn't know the names in English or German. It was a lovely, lovely place.
