NEWS: A Special Thank You From Garden Tour Chair John Beaudry

By John Beaudry.

Our 2018 Garden Tour was a smashing success! We had nearly one thousand attendees plus ten plein air artists painting and ten craftspeople selling beautiful handmade garden related crafts. We were also supported by an incredible group of fifty generous volunteers to whom we shout out a very special thank you! The number of participants arguably makes our tour the largest garden tour in San Diego County.

The gardens were at the peak of spring bloom, each one lovelier than the next. Because our tour is always early in the year, the weather is generally not overly hot, nor too cold. It is a perfect time of year for gardeners to be with one another and to do what we all love: come together to enjoy and learn about plants and gardens.

We especially want to thank all the homeowners who graciously opened their gardens for us all to enjoy; the tour would not exist without your generosity.

If you missed our tour this year, be sure to sign up early next year. We always sell out!

And last, but certainly not least, I want to thank all the SDHS board members for their tireless commitment to pulling it all together and making our garden tours a success year after year.

A special thank you to our tour day volunteers:
