Anniversaries are for celebrating. This year we mark not one, but two!
Illinois Dunesland Garden Club is in its 75th year and
this our our 10th Annual Garden Tour.
Those who took advantage of this tour were treated to views of many various styles of gardens. Our local gardeners demonstrated their talents and we were able to see changes made in these gardens as they evolved over the last ten years.
The gardens were viewed by enthusiastic garden-lovers young and old despite the heat. They were open from 9:30 to 2:30. We provided the map of seven gardens and you toured at your leisure.
Anniversaries are for dreaming. What ideas did you take from these seven gardens for your own home and landscape? Visitors came from as far away as Antioch and Lake Bluff to enjoy the natural beauty and even get some new inspiration for to take home with them.
There was also a fantastic raffle of plants and garden items—a chance to win over forty different prizes with little investment, including original paintings, garden themed sweaters, gift cards and dozens of plants!
A great Thank You to all the garden hosts.
