What The Visitors Will Miss
There is no perfect day to have a garden tour, at least not in my garden. When you plan for a four season garden there are always blooms coming and going and it is hard to say when the ideal time to open the garden to visitor should be. The first of the tours in my garden start in three weeks and by then I'm afraid this display of Spanish lavender and roses will be past its prime, having already been in bloom for a good month or maybe longer. But other roses are just starting to open and there are only a few iris and daylilies doing their thing right now so as the season progresses there will be other scenes that come into their own in time for guests. And I always have to remind myself that although I will miss these beautiful beds when they are done with their first flush, they will still be lovely, just not so colorful.
