Are you a fan of garden tours?

I hadn’t done many until I moved down here where they are in abundance. Then, this year I was on the Tour Committee (sounds quite grand, doesn’t it?) for my village Spring Garden Tour. You may be wondering if my garden was on the Tour…well, no. I just didn’t feel ready last fall when one had to commit. And, given the harsh winter we had (as did everyone else) I would have been having a fit about the sorry state of my plants. However, not to worry. By the beginning of April all was fine with the world. And by our Tour date of April 26 and 27 the entire village and all eleven gardens were looking absolutely spectacular. Of course, it helped that we had perfect weather!
