$10 and great company looking at nice landscaping! What a perfect way to spend a Sunday.

Last call for anyone who wants to go along with us. We'll stop for lunch somewhere along the way.

Man was it a perfect day for this or what?
Gretchen, Carolina, Kelly and I started right at 10am.. there was nice cloud cover for most of the tour which kept it nice and cool, and was great for taking photos.

We saw so many cute/cool ideas and great layouts and just nice places to sit and take it all in.

After we finished the tour we stopped at Mike's Garden Shop on 114 (to find a restroom) then Carolina and I each purchased a pot of Autumn Sedum. I've had my eye on that plant since the Denton County Master Gardener Tour last year.

We stopped for lunch around 1:30 at Panera in Southlake and were back at our starting point by 3pm.

There were giveaways at several of the homes, one of which had the City of Southlake water people giving away hose end sprayers, water meters and measuring cups to measure rain or your sprinkler systems. I could use all of those things! Already I've tested out the meter.

My friend Kelly is working on the photos and when she sends them to me I'll get them posted. Gretchen and Carolina also took photos.

It was a very pleasant way to spend the better part of a day and the company was great! (no whining kids or husbands who would rather be anywhere but there!)

In my opinion this one of the best bang for your buck for a gardener, without getting sweaty or dirty.
Someone else did all the work but you get to enjoy it. :)
