Albany Garden Tour

June 18, 2012

Saturday was a most glorious day for a garden tour. Warm! Up into the low 80′s! Needless to say I was a bit more enthusiastic with the photos at the beginning than later on. 7 stops total, but our group skipped the one closest to our house because we already know the setting.

We started out in Buena Vista:

Their gardens were extensive. I was truly surprised at how much was hidden on their property.

They are a working business featuring cut flowers and arrangements.

They had a rose garden

Cut flower garden… This poppy color was so nice.

The larkspur plants were enormous!

and so many colors!

Another house had a resident woodworker. He was so sweet! He showed me around their home which featured many of his creations. Just beautiful joinery and wood choices. I really enjoyed his hanging chair. So did little Olivia!

They had a lovely dogwood tree in their front yard.

A little lattice work at a different house. Nice way to block the neighbors!

and a little sweet pea tucked at the back of our final garden visit.

We all really enjoyed the tour.  A big thanks to all the host gardens and OSU Extension Master Gardner’s for putting the event on!
