18th Annual Back Garden Tour: Saturday & Sunday June 4&5

Blast!  There is a list of reasons why it sometimes stinks to work on the weekends - especially on an Island where fun, unique events are a common occurance... That and the fact that weekend days are often enjoyed pool - or beach - side with a frosty beverage in hand; which I've found to be a widely frowned upon thing to have in hand while at work... 

"Clean Galveston's" annual Back Garden Tour is another.  We have yet to be able to attend this fantastic event but continue to hear rave reviews from even the blackest-thumbed attendees (or whatever color is the true opposite of green).  Translation: you don't have to be a master gardener to enjoy the beauty and visual appeal of a well designed, executed and manicured backyard.  Plus, flowers are pretty.

The gist is this: tickets can be purchased in advance for $7 bucks.  They're $10 the day of and the hours are: Saturday June 4th from 10am-5pm and Sunday June 5th from 12 noon to 5pm.  (No after-hours backyard lurking, please -- unless you've been personally invited by the owner!)

There are 8 private backyard gardens on tour this year and you can purchase tickets at a number of locations.  Tickets are available for purchase online at http://www.cleangalveston.org/events.html and at galveston.com as well as area businesses including Tom's Thumb Nursery (2014 45th), Speedy's Printing (715 24th), Eiband's (2201 Postoffice), J Bangle's Silk Stocking Gallery (1124 25th) or the Galveston Wreath Co (1515 19th).

So get out there and enjoy how clean our Island is - maybe with a bit of sunblock too... Sheesh who turned the heat up the past few days?! 
 

**Rain dates are the following week, June 11th & 12th - just in case...
