OMG, it’s already May. The 2017 Austin Pond & Garden tour is coming up quickly. The owners are spiffing up their gardens to welcome you and share their “Backyard Bliss”.
Make a weekend dedicated to pond touring. The north ponds are on Saturday June 3 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, the night pond from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm in Cedar Park and the south ponds on Sunday from 9:00 pm to 5:00 pm. A wonderful tour is planned, 20 amazing ponds. Many have never been on the tour before.
The official tour maps are now available. The maps show a logical flow but you can start at any pond and go in any order. Be sure to show your wristbands. For those who have purchased a discount wristband on line, you can pick up your wristband at any pond; just bring your Pay Pal receipt.
Wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water and take your time to explore these gardens. Be inspired to create your own Backyard Bliss.
To wet your water garden appetite, here are some pictures from this year’s crop of ponds but don’t stop there, the ponds are much more exciting in person.
