PINEDALE – Whether your thumbs are green, brown or slightly mossy, the Sage and Snow Garden Club is inviting you along on its annual Garden Tours & Tea on Saturday afternoon, 1 to 5 p.m. on Aug. 12.
The tours include three hour-long “open garden” stops around Pinedale and finish with a garden club tea party. Bring lawn chairs, umbrellas and your friends and family to see how different gardeners are adapting to the county’s challenging environment.
The first garden open to the public will be from 1 to 2 p.m. at the home of Kelli and Andy Harrower at 54 Meadow Rd. where the greenhouse, inground garden beds and heirloom flowers are featured. Travel north on Tyler Street past the Pinedale school buildings and turn left (west) on Meadow Road to the white house with the red roof.
The second stop will be from 2 to 3 p.m. at the home of Mindi Crabb and Jeff Goltz at 5 Antelope Trail in the Half Moon subdivision of Pinedale. Features will include Goltz’s greenhouse, the raised asparagus bed, lick tub gardens, native flowers and heirloom yellow roses. Travel south of Pinedale on Highway 191, turn left on Fayette Pole Creek Road, turn right on Antelope Trail and stop at the second house on the left.
Last but by no means least, 3 to 4 p.m. is the hour to view the extensive gardens and landscaping of Patti and Dave Racich at 248 Fayette Pole Creek Rd. Features include the greenhouse, terraced garden beds, lick tub gardens, flowers, trees, shrubs and an extensive drip system. Travel south of town on Highway 191, turn left on Fayette Pole Creek Road and turn right on Racich Lane.
Don’t leave – the final hour from 4 to 5 p.m. is reserved for “tea” and networking – everyone is invited to the garden club’s dinner of pulled pork sandwiches, sides, desserts, tea, lemonade, wine beer and water.
Everyone is welcome to participate at any point. RSVP to Arlinda McLaughlin at 307-367-2791 or [email protected] by Aug. 9 for refreshment counts.
