As you all know, I have three part-time jobs. Some days I want to tear my hair out. Most days I have never been more happy.
My garden center/nursery boss has been hosting the annual Scarecrow Festival for years (I have posted about it a couple of times here) and that event benefits our town's non-profit community center. This year, she is hosting the first annual Garden Tour, and this event will benefit the community garden, a program of the non-profit community development corporation (one of my other part-time jobs)! Thank you to D my garden center boss, and to all the gardeners!
Wednesday, we went around to the gardens that will be featured on the tour, and I took some photos. I was amazed, and humbled, by the skill and beauty of these garden. Since the garden tour isn't until July 12th, I am excited to see what will be blooming then. A sneak peek of some of the gardens on the tour:
And here I was all excited about my dinky little garden, and this little corner: If you remember from last year when I first planted it.

And my Deutzia 'Magician/Magicien' is in bloom, in a bed next to our back porch stairs:
