This Weekend's Garden Tour

This Saturday and Sunday are the days for the second of two tours I've been deeply involved with this spring.  Specifically this is the weekend of the GPPA (Georgia Perennial Plant Association) Tour, and it's a wonderful collection of nine gardens in different parts of Atlanta.  There is everything from the manicured giant Buckhead gardens to a topiary-filled tiny jewel box garden that is a mere 15 by 50 feet, to an "urban garden" in Grant Park with chickens, rabbits, and a huge collection of orchids!  More information at

Perhaps I can start weeding in the Stepchild Garden next week after these tours are finished?


  1. Good luck with the tours and I hope you have great weather for it. Hope you post a write up on if after you have had a chance to catch your breath.


  2. This looks fun! I want to hear all about it!

  3. Oh how I WISH I could have attended the tour. I love peeping over the garden gate and seeing the secrets of good gardeners.

    All joys,
