July 8 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Planting partners. It is about the much-anticipated Coeur d'Alene Garden Tour which will be next Sunday from  11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Five gardens are on featured on the tour.

In the article, there is a list of nurseries that will be selling tickets in advance of the event for $15. Otherwise, you can purchase your tickets at any of the gardens on the day of the tour for $17.

The photo above is of (L-R) Bob and Diane Hoffman -- who are the homeowners/gardeners I profiled in the article -- and Bonnie Warwick, who is the publicity chair for the Coeur d'Alene Garden Club. For more tour information, go to the Coeur d'Alene Garden Club's web site.

I hope you can make it. The tour is always a delightful way to spend a summer's day.
