Tuesday afternoon the three of us whose gardens were open last night for touring by members of the Madison Area Master Gardeners and the Wisconsin Hardy Plant Society spent more than three hours wandering though each other's gardens before the big day. Lots of fun and many questions and exclamations!
Last night the first visitors were coming up our driveway moments before 4 p.m. and the last departed around 8:30 p.m. Mark and I were on our feet the entire time talking, laughing, answering questions and generally having a wonderful time. We saw many gardeners whose gardens we've toured over the years as well as neighbors and old friends. Matt Wieneke, who did our driveway/wall, also came by with his family and answered questions and explained how that big project all came together.
Thanks to everyone for their thoughtful remarks and compliments. And special thanks to our two great local gardening organizations who made it all happen.
