This self-guided tour showcases "real gardens for real people" all over the OC. We've toured other gardens several times and really enjoyed it. You can read more about it here. Don't miss the pictures from last year!
I don't know how I got brave enough to apply to be on the tour next year, but I did. And they said yes! So if you're in Southern California, put it on your calendar--Saturday April 30 & Sunday May 1. (I believe we'll be among the Sunday gardens) and come on by. It's free! And you can see first hand what I've done with all those yard sale finds I keep bragging about!
