Beyond The Garden Gates Tour

According to the press release offered by the city of Frederick’s Office of special Events: “This self-guided tour offers visitors a unique peek into some of Frederick’s finest private and public gardens. From sweet fragrances and lush colors, to unique uses of small spaces, guests are often surprised at what they find.”

After reading this article be sure to view the photo slide show below and you’ll see that the statement above may have been understated. Not only was this garden tour a “unique peek” into many beautiful gardens but it was an opportunity for garden lovers from all over the area to mix and share their gardening tips and tricks. Some were reacquainted with old friends and others were bitten by the gardening bug and were off to the nearest gardening center for supplies. I saw one car parked outside the last stop on the tour full of flowers ready to be planted in their new home.

It’s no wonder this tour is such an inspiration to want-a-be gardeners. At every stop on the tour the host and Garden Club volunteers are eager to answer questions and share their years of expertise. Now I know why in addition to first time day-trippers and tourists there are many locals who take this tour every year. The tour, in effect, is a series of mini gardening seminars that anyone interested in beautiful gardens wouldn’t want to miss.
