2013 is the first year in a while due to weather that the Master Gardeners have held a garden tour. Nine gardens were on the tour this year, and I spent the first Saturday touring all of them. A late warm up had the wildflowers and spring blooming opening later than normal and all of our hosts worried. A couple of days before the tour, the weather warmed up nicely and caused blooms to break out. This is the second of the nine gardens that I’m showing you.
The first garden I visited in Lauderdale County on the tour was that of Michael Scott and Phillip Oliver.
I first met Phillip and Michael when their garden was on the last tour. They have really done an incredible job of transforming a bland landscape into one of great beauty. I revisited Michael’s and Phillips garden the next day and it had a big difference in the amount of show.
