Dear Shelly, Thank you for letting the readers know about the 51st Annual Dearborn Garden Walk. (Read about it below.)
We hope, for the sake of readers who can not attend, that you take photos and write a small article about this garden event and submit it to TheGardenLady.org so that we all can enjoy the gardens and see what we missed. If you can identify unusual plants, that would be helpful.
TheGardenLady is most eager to know of gardening events around the country and around the world. So readers, PLEASE don’t hesitate to let this TheGardenLady.org know what is happening in your gardens and gardens that are open to the public.
I wish I could attend all these garden events. Who knows, maybe TheGardenLady will be able to attend some. But it will be an anonymous
visit, just as she likes to keep the blog anonymous.
TheGardenLady received this letter from Shelly Cellak.
Dear Garden Lady!
I would like to let you and your readers know about this year’s upcoming 51st Annual Dearborn Garden Walk. This annual walk will be held on Sunday, July 19, 2009 from 12pm-5pm. This is a self-guided tour of over 20 private, rear gardens in Chicago’s Near North neighborhood. This year, we are featuring 5 new gardens and will be showcasing dramatic garden vignettes. Classical and jazz music will be performed throughout select gardens and there will be several guided architectural tours.
Tickets are $35.00 on July 19, 2009 and $30.00 in advance. Advance sales end on Saturday, July 18, 2009 at 12:00pm. For ticket purchase information, please call: 312-632-1241 or visit: www.DearbornGardenWalk.com.
We have some great photos we’d be more than happy to share with you.
