Garden Tour


Yesterday was one of my favorite events in Fresno —the Master Garden Tour. Five private gardens were on the tour, each homeowner sharing  a unique vision of their outdoor space. It is so well organized and master gardners are present every few feet to answer questions. Plants are labeled with easy to read tags and there is not a weed in sight anywhere! It is an impressive event for anyone loving gardens. The Garden of the Sun is home to the master gardner program and their one acre ornamental and food demonstration garden, which  is open several days a week. It is nice to be reminded that this lovely site and educational resource is here all year.  

Of course the plant I wanted was sold out, so I am looking for a Bronze Fennel - Foeniculum vulgare.
