Wednesday, September 24, 2008 Raleigh Garden Conservancy’s Open Days tour also benefiting the JC Raulston Arboretum

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

The results are in…another great year for the Raleigh and beyond Garden Conservancy’s Open Days tour also benefiting the JC Raulston Arboretum. We had great weather and great gardens…the perfect combination. But we also had 2 noon games – one at State and the other at UNC. What sport is it this time of year? I can never remember nor do I care – ‘cept for the fact that it competes with my tour and generally getting people excited about being outside in the garden.

Mark your calendars for September 19/20, 2009. We have a great line up. As much as I bash sporting events, save gardening, I somehow fall back on sporting clichés to describe a situation…go figure.  6 Great gardens have agreed to open.  2 in Wake Forest, 2 inside the Beltline Raleigh, and 2 in Cary!  More coming.

Peggy Walters, landscape photographer will be taking media shots of the gardens. We will post them to whet your appetite.

    Hey, Helen, I am a little confused about the date for the Conservancy tour. Is it Sept. 24 as in the title of this piece or Sept. 19,20? We are having our Fuquay-Varina Garden Club tour on Sept. 19,20. Great minds come up with the same ideas!

  2. Oh dear, Ging this is confusing. This was written after the 2008 tour. Our 2009 tour is September 19/20 – yes the same as yours.
