Thoughts and Digressions of a Public and Private Gardener
I've heard that they have the FANCIEST restrooms there!
Yes, they do, Scott. Well appointed, always with flowers.
Michael, certainly an intriguing title for a post. And those well appointed, cool restrooms are such a relief on a hot humid day. When they call Chanticleer a "pleasure garden," they really mean it.
Jim,Every detail at Chanticleer is thought out and deliberate, without taking itself too seriously. If the garden should curtsey to the house, as Gertrude Jekyll believed, why can't the restroom curtsey to the garden?
If only men's rooms were like this the world over, Michael, we may be spared some of the tribal brutality that proceeds from them... Do they take bookings, at Chanticleer, to stay for a few weeks at a time? Please let me know how the showers are! A beautiful place, Michael. Civilised.
Unfortunately, Chanticleer is a day-trip destination, Faisal. I would love to walk around in the moonlight or see it at the break of day! Yes, very civilized.
Details like you show at Chanticleer are such a pleasure, and they certainly must draw repeat visits! A hotel I stayed at in uber-remote west Texas was similar; the least expensive room and communal men's bath / showers, right to the soaps and quality of towels, made even this budget traveler feel important! Nice planting statements help inside and out, of course...
It is all in the details, Dave. Chanticleer does them all with flair.
Love the yellow/gold...such a happy and masculine color and the flowers are pretty cool...who doesn't love them?
As you can see in my last post, the ladies room looks exactly the same.
I have been to Chanticleer twice now, and always look forward to using the restroom. The one in the Asian Woodland garden is my favorite.
Les,The Asian WC is very cool, I agree. I am partial to the main one.
Of all the gardens on my bucket list, this has been my favorite for a long time. I love posts and have a great book that came out recently. But now I've been to the loo, it's almost as good as being there (NOT)
Patrick, you must accomplish your bucket list. This post is not nearly enough! It is one of my favorites. Thanks for commenting.
