Aromas is unique in so many ways, quaint, friendly, beautiful and they have the best garden tour that is coming up so mark your calendar for May 12, the day before Mother’s Day. From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm ten lovely gardens will be open to the public. Take pictures, buy handmade art from artists stationed in each garden, and enjoy a day in the country, and here’s an idea, bring Mom or Grandma along.
Featured gardens range from well designed, drought tolerant spaces; others mature and ever changing as plants and trees increase in size and beauty; some gardens are hilly, others are flat and sunny. But most of the gardens are a melding of shady paths, sunny open areas and wonderful views. Recent rains have left their mark, incredibly beautiful flower and vegetable gardens.
Among the flowers and trees you will see artist’s displays of jewelry, pottery, photos, collage, greeting cards, hand painted Ukrainian eggs, paintings, stained glass, books by local authors and so much more. You might even purchase a special Mother’s Day gift while listening to Jessie sing and play his guitar.
Start your tour at the Aromas Community Grange, corner of Rose Ave. and Bardue Ave., where tickets sell for $15.00 and $10.00 for seniors. Get an early start as the gardens close at four. You might want to start at garden number 10 and work back to number 1 to avoid the crowds. See you in Aromas Saturday, May 12.
