The Garden Club toured Lavender Blue Lavender Farm-- check the link to see the picturesque shop and read the history of the area....
Owner Susan giving a lesson in pruning and benefits of lavender........
Wonderful little shop filled with unique items . Did I get anything ? Oh yes, I purchased linen spray and lavender balsamic salad dressing .
The second stop was Shades of Green Hosta Garden. Do check this link to see the many varieties offered and the lovely garden views..
We wondered thru the paths finding wonderful hostas , so many colours and textures.
How impressive in size when hostas are left to develop over many years.
Interesting signs , what gardener hasn't said this?
The owner Lisa spoke on the hybridizing of hostas , tissue culture and seed culture... we certainly got a better understanding of the cost of hostas from this talk. ...
With every garden event find I am learning something new or seeing a plant combination want to try in my own garden.
