Tour Ready?

Well, it’s a bit more than 12 hours until the start of the Northfield Garden Club Tour and I think I might be ready. This year’s tour is gardens that are near city property and mine was chosen because of the wild area near our backyard.

We’ve been doing a lot of cleaning up, sprucing up and planting up to get ready for the tour, and I think the yard looks pretty good. Here are some of the things I hope tour goers will enjoy:

  1. How honored you must feel to have your garden chosen as part of a tour. Congratulations! The pictures you posted were lovely. What type of a cherry tree is that in the picture? I didn’t know you could grow Cherry’s in Mn.

  2. Chris — It is a ‘Bali’ or ‘Evans’ cherry. It is a tart cherry, which we can grow in Minnesota. Sweet cherries don’t grow well here.
