Garden tour benefits historical society
Provided to the Tribune
In the Skyland development, there is a natural outcropping of granite boulders that has been incorporated into a secret pathway to the lake. Full of ornamental trees, stone steps, native plants and perennials, this meandering path leads to a wide and beautiful vista. Or you may prefer a meadow view with a winding river and Mt. Tallac in the distance – truly a picture of Old Tahoe.
These and other gardens will be on exhibit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 24. Tahoe in Bloom is a garden tour to benefit the Lake Tahoe Historical Society and organizers hope to make it an annual event. The tour consists of seven gardens throughout the South Shore, from Skyland to Sierra Boulevard, from a small, quiet Zen garden in a busy intersection to an Alpine cottage garden, to a serene lakefront treasure.
The Dream Spirit Baroque Band will play at Garden No. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Light refreshments will be served throughout the tour. Tickets are $12 and are available at the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum, 3066 Lake Tahoe Blvd.; Aspen Hollow, 541 Emerald Bay Road; Sunbasin Landscape & Nursery, 276 Kingsbury Grade; and Nel’s Garden Center, 1050 Fremont Ave.
