Tours R Us Kicks Off

Garden clubs should be forums for inspiration, and in case you missed it, a group of Bernardo Gardeners, spearheaded by Mary Vaughn, has organized a program to tour the gardens of interested members. Calling itself Tours R Us, the program launched with the June 19th tour of Linda Freithaler's digs, pictured below. Cheers to those who are participating, and may Tours R Us become a tour de force!
