First "Mini" Garden Tour a Big Success

On Wednesday, July 6, 20+ garden club members and some guests had the great pleasure of visiting other people's gardens.  This was the first of two "mini" garden tours scheduled for July.  We started at a Century Home garden that is lush and colorful.  This garden has been on garden tours in the past but is always delightful to visit again.  Next was a garden with a wonderful shaded garden in the front.  The back garden is colorful with a wide variety of plants, some of which are quite unique.  The third garden visited belongs to a club member.  This garden in only a couple of years old so is still somewhat in progress.  However, it is well-planned and meticulously maintained with a good variety of plantings and color.  I can't wait to see this garden in a couple of more years.  The last garden also belongs to a club member.  This garden takes you back in time.  It is wonderfully old-fashioned and seems like you are in the country instead of in the middle of Westlake.  This garden is lush with shasta daisies, lillies, red husker, cannas, pink campion, just to name a few.  We had lunch and refreshments in this garden which was the perfect ending to a perfect day.  Thank you to all of the homeowners who opened their gardens for this tour.  We hope you can join us on Wednesday, July 20 for the second "mini" garden tour.
