Thanks to Colleen Tucker and Jennifer Quarterman for another successful Flagstaff Tour of Artful Gardens. Money raised from this project will help support CMGA Garden Grants for 2018.
I was able to tour 6 of the 7 gardens and with only a few drops of rain. They were all very beautiful and yet different in size and focus. We had a wonderful selection of plants and styles, from the more formal Japanese "strolling garden" at the Babbit house on Leroux to the Farm Your Front Yard at Julie McDonald's home. Below are some photos of the gardens, in addition to the one opening this blog.
