2017 Le Tour des Jardins - A Garden Sensation
1300 gardener enthusiast from Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas attended the 2017 Le Tour des Jardins Garden Tour in Shreveport, LA this past week end. It was a "picture-perfect" weekend for a garden tour! The weather was beautiful and sunny with temperatures in the upper 70's to lower 80's, temperatures. This year, the event kicked off with plant and lawn accessories exhibits and sales at the Pioneer Heritage Center at LSUS. Visitors had a great selection of viewing diverse landscapes, including manicured formal to free-flowing natural and informal gardens including a model vegetable community garden. Master Gardeners supported each of the 6 homes on the tour by guiding visitors through the gardens and answering any questions along the way. Snacks and cool refreshing beverages were available at each stop as well. Plans are already underway for next years tour and yes it will be another fantastic event of all to see!
