Whew! Two weeks and six garden walks in Northern Michigan. Who knows how many in the rest of the state. I, sadly, couldn’t go to all of them. The weather wasn’t extremely hot, matter of fact, it was a little on the cool side. Charlevoix Area G.C. had a bunch of beautiful gardens on their walk, and it is a gorgeous area of Michigan. My Morning Glory’s G.C. stopped for lunch and again at end of day for pies, fresh cherries and jams.

I helped judged the Friendly G.C. of Traverse City’s garden walk. The club treated the judges to lunch at El Dorado on main street, T.C. before the walk. More than I could eat. The five gardens were each distinct but all showed the loving care of a dedicated gardener. Each deserved an award.

Of course, the garden I scored highest didn’t win, but that’s why you have three judges.
