What a great way to celebrate the 25th anniversary year of the Rotary Botanical Gardens with yet another beautiful Home Garden Tour! While the showers held off except for a few drops on this lovely day, July 12, the precipitation earlier in the growing season made for verdant, beautiful lawns and healthy, stunning gardens.

Our most sincere thanks go to the eight garden owners who opened their showcase gardens to more than 500 attendees who oohed and aahed their way through the beautifully tended botanical delights. From formal to cottage, from large to petite, from traditional to whimsical, this walk offered it all. Everyone walked away feeling inspired and filled with ideas of what they might attempt next year in their own gardens.

We so appreciate the efforts of the homeowners and the support of event sponsors, in-kind sponsors, ad sponsors, musicians, committee members, volunteers and you, the people who love the beauty and tranquility of local gardens. It was a great time. Thank you for making it a successful day to support the operations of Rotary Botanical Gardens.
