What a great time on Saturday with Leesburg's Center for the Arts fundraiser: "Art in the Garden." The event hosted a tour of gardens with talented local artists inspired by the surrounding landscape. I was able to hitch a ride with four lovely ladies in proper hats, winners of the "grand tour" which featured driving to each home in a white limousine that had champagne and chocolate wine.
Starting at Simon Seed Nursery in Leesburg,co-sponsor of the "Art in the Garden," the tour visited five homes with birds, creative landscapes, lakefront views, and fabulous paintings.
I tried to take as many photographs as I could even though I was pointing out great plants everyone should have in their gardens as well as naming species.
The highlight was a delicious brunch served at Leesburg's Center for the Arts Gallery on Main Street with special guest, Rosarian extraordinaire Mark Nelson, of Nelson's Roses fame.
What a great time I had and I'm marking my calendar for next year's Art in the Garden!
