2011 Lake of The Sky Garden Tour

This year Lake of The Sky Garden Tour will return to Truckee on Saturday July 30th from 10am-4pm. If you are an avid gardener or love looking at beautiful gardens, this is a not-to-miss event.

At the high altitude of Lake Tahoe & Truckee, there are many challenges to gardening.  A few that readily come to mind is our short planting season. This year we received a snow storm in early June and sometimes we start getting snow in October so to cultivate a garden with gorgeous flowers and beautiful gardens is no mean feat. Also we have a lot of wildlife such as deers, chipmunks, squirrels who delight in tasting the first tender buds or tasty flowers...and that is enough for me to contemplate giving up on my gardening hobby sometimes.

That is why Lake of The Sky Garden Tour becomes such a treat for me every year. You will marvel at the hidden gardens and exquisite flowers nestling along rocks walls or garden paths. A few gardens will also have soothing water features with lively fishes and exotic plants. There will be 8 gardens on tour this year including one lakefront property at Donner Lake.

   

Tickets for2011  Lake of The Sky Garden Tour are only $20 and you can purchase them at all local nurseries or Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce. Tickets can sell out quickly and may not be available on tour day so make sure you get some soon if you don't want to miss this enjoyable event.

Ann, It must be frustrating to deal with the climate and the wildlife with your gardening, but, obviously there are still many rewards.  I remember being at Lake Tahoe for a Wedding (many years ago).  It was held at the Lake's edge, with violinists playing, and beautiful landscaping surrounded the outdoor area, where the wedding service was held.  The colorful flowers and lush green ferns, similar to those in your background, made the perfect backdrop.  Gardening is a labor of love, but is appreciated by many.  Best wishes always.

Richard,

I am amazed looking at some of the gardens in Tahoe. I do enjoy gardening and try to play in the dirt whenever I have some free time but since our season is so short...we can hardly enjoy the blooms before it's over :-(
