It’s Garden Tour Season!

There are more garden tours in Northern California this weekend than we could possibly get around to, but by golly, we’re going to try.  (In particular, we’re sorry to miss Digging Dog opening its private garden for the Mendocino Garden Tour.  Durn.)  If you’re out inspecting garden sheds, checking plant labels, and generally kicking the tires of your neighbors’ gardens this summer, send us a full report and we’ll post it.  Bonus points for anyone who photographs hastily-planted new beds made up entirely of blooming one-gallon perennials purchased just hours before the tour began and surrounded by a hides-a-multitude-of-sins layer of gorilla hair.  (hey, we’ve all done it.)

  1. I reviewed a garden tour in Austin back on May 13. (Garden tour season arrives earlier here.) If you’d like to post it on Garden Rant, with attribution to me at Digging, feel free. Check it out in my May 13, 2006, entry, “Garden Tour,” at (the first two paragraphs).
