Austin Garden Bloggers sometimes get to do some pretty cool things. Things that make me feel special, which is always a good deal. This time we all got a preview of the upcoming Inside Austin Gardens Tour. The tour is open for public viewing soon – May 3 to be exact – and you can find out where to buy tickets here.

Lori Daul’s garden makes beautiful use of a narrow side entrance, something many of us contend with.

This year’s theme is “Gardens Eclectic” and it is certainly fulfilling that concept. You will find something that tickles your fancy, no matter your style. And everything is do-able on a normal budget, rather than the high-dollar designer landscapes that are often on garden tours.
