Garden Tour Today!

Come one, come all, to the 2012 Annual Spring Black Cat Pottery/English Landscape Garden Tour, open to the public, free of charge, 10a-2p, today, Saturday, June 2. Come see a unique, small urban garden incorporating usual numbers of Clematis (40+) and native plants (150+), observe alternative methods for growing marginal plants as well as green gardening solutions in action.

Visit with the gardener (me) - author of a recent article on native plants which appeared in Michigan Gardener magazine - as well as local garden artisans; enjoy locally-made refreshments; and possibly some live music (keep your fingers crossed that Charlie Palazzola can make it and brings at least one of his guitars)! (I've also invited my friend/massage therapist Justin Phipps to come do chair massage - not sure he can make it.) Call either of the numbers in the information block listed to the left for location and directions.

A shout out here to Sharon Bass (terrific basin installation assistant), Stephen Hulbert (lawnmower extraordinaire) and Chelsea Martin and Chris Hopp (for perfect trough delivery, fountain reassembly and large pot relocation efforts) for helping me get it done. I may do most of the work but I certainly don't to it all!

Can't make it today? Book a private tour for your garden club or other group or come visit on August 18, same time, same place, for the 2012 Annual Summer Black Cat Pottery/ English Landscape Garden Tour - with even more attractions!

Remember - every day is a different day in a garden!

Hope to see you - soon!
