The event, put together by area garden enthusiasts, will feature six locations in Graft0n. and ending at 7:30) Peggy said that they started with their own gardens and spoke with a few different people to get a variety of locations. "I know the other gardeners because they have such lovely yards and we like to visit with each other about our gardens. There are certainly other wonderful gardens in town but this was a start," Peg- gy said, she added that this idea came together quickly. Each location features a differ- ent theme to showcase its unique- ness. Peggy's garden features glass items, as her husband John is a glass artist who does stained glass, lam- pworks, and fused glass items, "so I incorporate his rejects into the yard." She added that he plans to have a tent set up in the yard with his work available for sale that day.

Casey Moe, whose family owns Gmffon Floral, is in 20s. Peggy said that a friend suggested showcasing his back yard. Ruth Unruh's husband has built two beautiful tiny houses that are in their yard. Peggy said that the event will raise money to go toward the food pantry because "we felt that the food pantry would resonate with people as a worthy cause." Peggy said that she would like the tours to continue next year. "I'll have a sign-up sheet at each site asking people if they would like to show their gardens next year or if they can suggest a garden that they think should be featured," she said." We'd probably have it a little earlier next year because some of the flowers might be 'done' by Aug. 18."
