Lovely Day for Garden Tour

Skip McDonough's beautiful garden was on the tour.

Skip McDonough's "Backyard Getaway" garden was on the tour.

The weather was picture perfect on July 11 for the 2nd annual Garden Tour, organized by Leonor Jacobson as a benefit for the Wellness Garden at the Health Center.

The 60-some individuals touring the gardens could choose from a half-day or full-day tour, with a catered box luncheon outside at the Health Center, where all could enjoy the beautiful Wellness Garden.

Each garden on the tour had a name depicting its theme – from Skip McDonough’s “Backyard Getaway” to Bruce Struik’s “Rocks of Resistance.”  Some participants traveled in the Stoney Acre bus while others took their own vehicles. Many had cameras in hand to capture the beautiful flowers and special landscaping.
