Garden Tour

Five local gardens in three hours.
Proceeds benefitted the local hospice.
It was a perfect afternoon.

Each garden unique, unlike any other.

Large outdoor playrooms.

Quiet zen like gardens.

Happy peaceful gardens.

Even a little desert habitat.

A good time was had by all.

Especially the resident turtle.

A garden stroll before work is a grand way to start the day. Your sunshine is good for the soul. We are going to have rain, maybe hail today. Ahhh, April showers.

You know... our local garden club offers a tour each year, and I've never taken it. I should do that! I bet it's fun! Thanks for sharing! I like that turtle - he's pretty!

It's so nice to see others enjoying the beauty that is all around us.
Oh how I long for the sun though. It's been awful here in the NW, so to see this brilliant sun in S. Cal. is to say I am a little jealous.
Want buckets of rain? We've got it.....
