2012 Progress Garden Tour – 2 of 5 : )

The second stop on our Progress tour took us to the lovely home of the Fortier’s. I had driven past their place on numerous occasions and had always admired the beautiful home and the flowers. It was kind of funny, because we drove past it on our way to the other garden and I lamented to Darcy that it was too bad it wasn’t on the tour. When the convoy stopped in front of it on our way back I was beyond delighted!

2012 Progress Garden Tour – 1 of 5 : )

Next up is the garden tour put on by members of the Peace Mission Chapel in Progress, BC on July 25th. The tour showcases rural gardens in and around the Progress community. How it works is you congregate in the church parking lot at 9 am and leave in a convoy at 9:30 am. When it’s time to move on to the next garden the convoy leader honks her horn and away everyone goes to the next one. There was no map or brochure and I hadn’t thought of posting the pictures at the time so didn’t write down the names of the gardeners…some I know, some I don’t and some I only have the last name or initials picked up from entrance signs. I will try to find out more from the organizers and add them on when I do…

The first garden we pulled into was that of H & E Franks…
