July 7 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: CdA tour lets visitors explore others' labors. As you can guess, it's a preview of next Sunday's (July 14th) Coeur d'Alene garden tour, which is put on by the Coeur d'Alene Garden Club.

I noticed that the information about the tour itself didn't make it into the online version so here it is:

It's always fun to go on this tour and they always have such stunning gardens to visit. I took the above photos while I was interviewing Claudia Lowry and Bob Bloem for this feature story. Their garden is AWESOME! Hope to see you on the tour.
