Fall Garden Tour
Thanks to all who attended our Fall Garden Tour!
Five spectacular gardens by members of the Dallas County Master Gardener Association were featured on the 2016 Garden Tour on Saturday, October 1. Visitors saw formal English gardens on Swiss Avenue, edible landscaping in Preston Hollow, a buzzing pollinator garden in University Park, native perennials and ornamental grass in Old East Dallas and landscaping for gracious entertaining in Bluffview.
The Garden Brunch was new this year and featured recipes from A Year on the Plate, the new master gardener cookbook [click here to order your copy]. Guests were treated to a menu chosen from fall produce, including Iced Herb Gazpacho and Artichoke Bites. Brunch was served on a lovely Bluffview patio shaded by live oak trees.
