Sunday, May 18th, from 11:00 to 5:00, Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills and Casa Linda nieghborhoods are the place to be for the garden/artist tour. The artists I asked to participate last year will be back along with a few others. They've been working on pieces for the sale for months. Friends from Fort Worth I insisted on coming last year, (who didn't want to drive over) asked me months ago for the date this year so they could put it on their calendar. The plant sale will be across the street from the garden I'll be displaying my art. My garden is 8407 San Pedro Parkway. Every plant I've bought at the sale during the years has survived in my garden. That's a big statement for the killer plant queen.
Best part - the tour is free. We have raffle tickets to purchase and accept donations.
Mark your calendar today - Sunday, May 18, from 11:00 to 5:00

This month's garden club was held at Jane's house and it's always one of my favorite meetings. I was late, so had a chance to walk from the street and down her driveway by myself. Her large trees and beautiful yard give you that AHHHHHH moment. I'll bet on one of our 100 degree days walking in her yard is still a treat. Everywhere you looked was pretty foliage in every shade of green. Jane's yard by itself is art. Oh, the meeting was delightful, too.

March Forest Hills Garden Club meeting was at Mary Ehrenberger's home. I had a Texas Sculpture Association board meeting the same night so I only dropped in for a minute to see her lovely home and yard. Her yard will be featured on the May 18th Garden Tour and by the time the date rolls around her plants will be flourishing. Here's a "before" picture of her back yard with her husband John and son Jonathan in front her greenhouse. I'll be sure and post "after" pictures on the day of the tour.
