Old Louisville Garden Tour


I enjoy seeing other people's gardens. One of the best ways to do this is to take a garden tour. It's fun  to see beautiful and unique gardens, and I usually get some ideas for my own garden on these tours.  There are several annual garden tours in the Louisville area including Crescent Hill, Tyler Park, Audubon Park, the Original Highlands neighborhood and Old Louisville. Last weekend I experienced the Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour. This is my favorite tour because the yards and gardens are small like mine (some are even smaller) and the architecture is spectacular! Old Louisville is a National Historic Preservation District and has a large assortment of Victorian architecture. Saint James Court in Old Louisville is host to the annual St. James Art Fair, one of the largest art fairs in the country. It is held the first weekend in October.

Your gardens are wonderful! Your patio looks so inviting, like you could just sit down with a big glass of iced tea. I love all of the things given to you, it makes them more special. Maybe you can try to look at some of great windspinner too! for your wonderful garden
