Garden tours are one of the very best ways to spend a day. Really. I love them and can’t get enough. Oh yes, there is the “grand” garden tour of Sissinghurst or Longwood but I’m talking about the tours put on by garden clubs in cities, towns and villages all over the country.

This weekend is the
Chapel Hill Spring Garden Tour,  
Garden Journeys: Through Time, Change and Challenge

This is one of the eight gardens on tour this weekend: hours are Saturday 10-4 and Sunday 11-4. And….this is where I will be a docent on Sunday! We had a meeting at the house and garden today when I took the above shots.

Needless to say, it is charming. Let’s just hope the weather holds out on Sunday!

If you’re in the area and want a ticket (good for both days and all houses) the price is $25.00. I have one left; so contact me. Or you can buy the day of the tour for $35.00. I’m going to be visiting the other seven houses on Saturday and can’t wait. I went on the Tour two years ago: you can read about it HERE.

‘Tis the season for garden tours: let us know if you have any coming up or have seen something spectacular in your garden travels!
