Garden Photo of the Day

Touring gardens near Kansas City, Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Kathy’s tour of local gardens. In case you missed it, yesterday she said, “Each year the greater Kansas City area is treated to a garden tour. On odd numbered years the the tour is hosted by the Master Gardeners of Greater Kansas City (Missouri). On even numbered years we are treated to the tour by the Johnson County (Kansas) Master Gardeners. All of the gardens on this tour belong to Master Gardeners.

These are photos of some of the gardens I visited in May 2014. I always come away from these tours with new ideas.”

Miniature gardens: Swoon! I know some people hate ’em, but I love ’em. And I’m a huge fan of the mirrored  windows and painting dead trees and shrubs interesting colors.

This was fun, Kathy, thanks!

    What a treat Kathy - thank you! Especially love the painted contorted filbert branch (or what it appears to be?) and coleus container. I've seen painted live tree trunks before - quite attractive and lively especially during the bleak winter months.

    Yes, I agree with you Perennially Crazy, the painted contorted filbert branches add such an interesting and lively touch. I always love the chance to see new ideas...always amps up my energy to try something new.

    Nice photos and some good ideas. It would be nice if we could enlarge the photos. If there's a way, I can't seem to find it.
