Last week I had the pleasure of hosting the Laguna Beach Garden Club for one of their members' garden tours in my San Juan Capistrano home.
Although this is the only garden club I have ever belonged to, I do think it is an amazing group (very large group, close to 200 members) of gardeners with really big hearts and lots of enthusiasm! Not all members show up for these informal tours, only around 30 people I would say.
I felt a little guilty because I have never had them to my Laguna garden which is much more dramatic and mature. There is not much parking there and I worry that 15 or 20 cars would mean about 10 or 15 would have no place to park!
They had all kinds of questions for me and it was a mental challenge to remember the names of every plant they asked about as well as garden structure questions, but it was fun and rewarding to share my garden with people that are as passionate about gardening as I am!
