Annual Lake of the Sky Garden Club Tour – July 25, 2015   Leave a comment

By Michelle Portesi

 

This wonderful event will be hosted in the lovely gardens of Truckee this year from 10 am to 4 pm.

I try to make this event every year. Last year’s garden tour was along Lake Tahoe’s Magical West Shore. This was a self guided tour, with viewing of creative landscaping all along Highway 89 south –  from expansive lakeshore estates all the way to modest backyard secret gardens…and everything in between!

The gardens always feature creative landscaping, often incorporating decks and patios, meandering streams or lily ponds.  At the larger estates, you’ll stumble upon unexpected, quiet little outdoor nooks just perfect for reading a book or wander long pathways of flower beds full of riotous blooms. I guarantee, you’ll go home inspired with a bounty of new ideas for your own yard.

This year’s event features 8 gardens as well as landscaping at the Truckee Donner Community Recreation Center, where light refreshments will be served.

Get a group of friends together and make a day of it. It’s best to carpool from house to house. Parking can be limited, and you’ll have much more fun driving together. Plan your route so you aren’t driving back and forth, and DO plan a lunch or snack break in between the gardens at one of Truckee’s many fine restaurants along the way.
