Stockade Garden Tour preview (2016)

 The Stockade Association’s 2016 Garden Tour — “Art & Nature” — will take place on Friday and Saturday, July 15 & 16, with Stockade residents opening twelve gardens to the public. For more information, go to the Garden Tour webpage, which lists Ticket Outlets and allows online purchases. Tickets for entrance to all participating gardens, valid both days, are $20 in advance, and $25 on Tour day.

The following slideshow offers a preview of the twelve 2016 Art & Nature Garden Tour locations. The photos were taken between June 15 and June 24, 2016, so expect many refinements, plus the inevitable demands of Mother Nature and whimsical touches of many artistic muses. [To see a larger version of an image in the slideshow, pause on the image, then right-click on it and choose “open image in new tab”.]

Thanks, in advance, to the Tour Committee members, who have been working hard to create and coordinate the event, and to all those who purchase tickets and join the Tour. Extra special thanks to the Hosts for opening their gardens, and for all their planning, planting, and tending.
