This weekend I will be Hero Quilting on Saturday & going to my niece's Dance Recital on Sunday. Oh, and quilting like crazy. These geraniums are by our front door. They are a new variety I found at Jordan Nursery called Graffiti Double Salmon from the Exotic Geranium family. I promise I didn't make that up either! They have the best prices on geraniums. There are several garden tours this weekend. Camano Island's Backyard Wildlife Habitat Garden Tour is this Saturday. It's FREE! The Mabana Flames (one of the Island Fire Station women's auxiliaries) will have box lunches you can buy. The Flames buy any needed equipment for the Mabana Fire fireman. Go here for a glimpse of what you will see.
In Everett you can go on the Garden's of Merit tour. Six gardens will be on the tour benefiting the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens in Everett. The cost is $10. I've never been, but must add this one to my bucket list!
