The North Mobile Garden Society Spring Garden Tour is this Saturday, May 9th!!!! WHOO HOO!!! We have been planning for over a year, and the time has finally come! I am so excited. I hope we have a great turn out!
Sunday all of the Garden Club members had a preview tour. Since we will all be working at a particular garden the day of the tour, we decided to have preview so everyone could see all the gardens. We probably had 40 people including members, & husbands. Good group. 2007 was the first year of the Garden Tour, and Ramona said there were only 6-8 people on that preview tour. Boy have we grown!
I am going to highlight some of the gardens on tour everyday this week. I have previously posted on 2 of them. I will link to them at the end of the post.
We are going to start the week of with Evelyn and Mike (aka Yard Slave) Butler!
Evelyn started her garden in March of 2008. She has worked in it religiously everyday since then....and it shows! The Garden gang! She just painted this shed a week or so ago!
The arbor Yard Slave built...very nice
Another Yard Slave creation!
This I must have! Buddleia, Butterfly Bush. Janie (club president) gave a cutting of this to Evelyn...and look how beautiful it is! I am getting a piece of this right after the tour is over!
Isn't it beautiful!
