Enchanted Gardens . . . Giveaway!

Lilium ssp
June is garden tour time, and one of my favorites is the Enchanted Gardens Tour of Northwest Denver.  This year's tour is slated for Saturday, June 16th, from 9am-4pm, rain or shine. What's so great about this tour?
  • The sponsor:  The Conflict Center, now celebrating 25 years of violence prevention.
  • The location:  great, early to mid 20th century architecture in some of Denver's most charming (and hip!) neighborhoods, including Highlands, Berkeley, Sloan's Lake, Sunnyside, and more.
  • The gardens:  personal, creative expressions that reflect each gardener's passion.
I always come away from this tour excited and inspired by what I can learn from garden makers who are not hide-bound by design "rules".  Bravo to the amateur gardener - follow your heart's desire!

Would you like to attend the Enchanted Gardens Tour? I have two pairs of tickets to give away!  Just leave a comment on this blog post, and I'll use the random number generator to select the winners on June 11th.

I would love tickets to this garden tour! I am a recent follower of your blog and an avid gardener that loves finding new plant combinations for our arid climate. Seeing new gardens always gives me new ideas and inspirations!

I wish I could have closed for all of 2012 and gone to every garden tour! Sounds really cool; when my father was in an assisted living home just E of Sloan's Lake 10 years back, I eyed some interesting home landscapes I wanted to get photos of, but forgot to. (I've since become more crazy to get photos of everything)

It is <7 hours of a drive for me...hmmm.
