The garden tour/art exhibit went off without a hitch this past Saturday. We got lucky with some rain showers and cooler weather the week prior to the event, so things went from toasty and dry looking to quite acceptable. Of course, I spent several days “staging” the garden by adding new flowering plants or those with cool foliage, moving pots from the patio into the garden, adding fresh mulch, weeding, deadheading, etc. It’s actually been months of work getting things (and keeping them!) ship shape for the garden event, not to mention preparing for an art exhibition (and having plenty of new work to show!) as well. Whew! The past few days have been spent merely puttering about, enjoying the fruits of our labors. Hope you enjoy this mini photo tour!
