Spring Garden Tour – here we come!

Our west courtyard has been selected to be a “contributing property” for our neighborhood association’s Spring Garden Tour!  Whoo-hoo!  Too fun!  I just LOVE going on garden tours, so it is great fun to have created something that others will enjoy and perhaps be inspired by.

Here’s a “Before” photo":


And “After” – voila!  (Click to enlarge.)



The Tour is a fundraiser for the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Historic Designation Fund.  Our neighborhood has been nominated for historic status – which, if we get it, will mean a permanent reduction of approximately 50% in our property taxes!  We need to raise $38,000 to pay our half of the consultants’ fee – the consultant who is walking us through the lengthy legal process of nomination.  We’ve raised $10,000 so far!

Luckily, the event is not until April 18, so there is more time for our new plantings to fill in.

The other fun news is that I will also be selling my fabric art here during the Garden Tour and donating 50% of the proceeds to the Historic Designation Fund.  Here’s a little preview… (yet to be embroidered and quilted AND named):
