*As things are still in the planning process, events may shift times. That said, we feel fairly certain the days mapped out above will remain as stated. 


  1. Kelly, it all looks superb. I can't wait to see everything! Thanks for putting it all together.

  2. Looks wonderful, Kelly! And combined with some day before and after, fabulous! Thanks for all the work in putting it together.

    Will there be opportunities for accompanying folks (in my case, a hubbie) to join in on dinner at the Conservatory or the closing reception?

    1. Lisa - we have limited seating at the Conservatory. At the moment we have them reserved for the bloggers as well as some sponsors. I'd be happy to put your hubbie's name on a wait list in case we have some extra seats. Can you email me at kelly@floradoragardens.com and I will start a wait list. And the Flora Grubb space is small enough that we will be limiting it to just the bloggers.

  3. Kelly you've done a bang-up job. I hate you. I cannot make it this year. These photos are delicious!

    1. I'm sorry to hear you can't make it Jim. We're going to have some juicy gardens on the tour!

  4. What an amazing itinerary. I'm getting so excited about it and all those pictures you just posted are wonderful.

  5. Sounds fantastic, I've wanted to tour gardens in that area for many years now, it looks so grand!

  6. Wow..What a beautiful garden.Everything have a value with time so post your posters on time for more benefits..

  7. Wow. I helped plant the garden in the second to last picture when I worked for Buenoluna Landscape Design a couple years back. I planted a lot of those douglas iris and heuchera. It looks amazing. I don't usually get to see a garden I've helped install after it's grown in and blooming. All the gardens look fantastic.

  8. Is the Dudan garden going to be on the tour? It looks great in the photo and it's a fun garden. I'm sure people would enjoy seeing it. The other gardens look great, too; it all makes quite an impressive event.

    1. Ryan, yes we are having the Dudan garden on the tour. You guys should sign up for the Fling and come tell us about the early phases of the garden!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
