Chandeliers in trees and other ideas...

The LAC's 2017 Garden Tour offered up an array of intriguing outdoor decorating ideas, lots of beautiful flowers to photograph, vegetable gardens to drool over and a fun time with friends and family.  The kids, and kids at heart enjoyed two railroad gardens, complete with manicured plants scaled to the miniature train towns.  The weather couldn't have been better, and back at the gallery, lunch was served for the 170 ticket holders who enjoyed the delicious salads, gazpacho and drinks.  Lots of garden art on the walls and shelves made it home with gallery visitors, and representatives from the CSU Extension offered advice on everything from bee-keeping to emerald ash borer prevention. Putting on a fundraiser of this magnitude required a lot of hard work and time from many volunteers, and thanks go to them for all their hard work, as well as the homeowners and gardeners who volunteered their beautiful and well-tended gardens for the tour.  And now, we look forward to next year's tour!
