Hi, I’m Yvonne Horn,

A professional full-time travel writer and photographer.

While, yes, I travel the world to see fabulous cities and natural wonders, I also travel to wander gardens.

I search out gardens that could not exist in any other place than where they are. I look for gardens that reflect the gardener’s passion, gardens with historical tales to tell, gardens with a bit of wacky embedded in their beauty.

Why? Because I’m a gardener.

When I’m not traveling the world as an award-winning travel journalist, www.YvonneHorn.com I spend my free time pulling weeds and moving plants around in my own backyard in Northern California’s Sonoma County.

I understand gardens, and I dearly love them. This site, The Traveling Gardener,  gives me the opportunity to share my finds with you after they’ve seen print as feature articles in magazines and newspapers.

With a click, you’ll read about an Alice in Wonderland-like garden in Boquete, a garden dedicated to an ancient shipwreck in Stockholm, a poison garden in England -and many more.

Stay tuned – as I discover them, you’ll find them here.
