Garden Club of Jackson Spring Tour On Pinehurst Place

We hosted the Garden Club of Jackson Spring Tour luncheon here OPP last week on Thursday and Friday.  The weather was definitely on our side serving up sunny days with temps in the low 80s and even a rain shower during the night Thursday allowing me to take a walk rather than pull the hose around!

 Several of you have asked for a recap of the party-ready garden and so here we go…

a friend gave me a small piece of this rose that had rooted in her garden about three years ago and I believe she is happy here…
