Edward James' Surreal Garden


Once again my pbase gallery of images from Edward James Gardens in Xilitla has seen lots of hits over the weekend.....800 in one day. I was shocked at so many so I knew there had to be some reason, some publicity, some article, something that generated that many hits. I googled "Edward James," "Surreal gardens," "Xilitla"....but nothing turned up that was new enough to cause the hits starting on Sunday. Then someone left a message on pbase for me. He liked the photographs and said he found the site because he watched a BBC television program series called Around The World in 80 Gardens. Now I had something definite to google and I found this article about the television series. Now I know what generated so much interest in the images from the surreal garden in Xilitla.

Where is this? Can be seen on a day trip from SMA? Looks just wonderful.

Cynthia, Xilitla is about an 8 hour drive through the mountains so it really takes about 3 days. It is in the mountains to the East kind of between Tampico and Vera Cruz.

So it's one more of those things I plan to do one day.

Thanks and great photos. I looked at all of yours on the web and they are just wonderful.

One of my favorite places in the world! Spent 8 hours there taking pics and exploring all the paths. I WILL go back someday. A pity that it is falling into ruin though with no funding to keep it up.
