Is it over yet?

I am finally getting around to showing you the last home of The Garden Conservancy Open Days Tour. This garden is in the West Kessler neighborhood of Dallas.

Front of the tour garden.

The neighbor's yard matches nicely.

Just a small amount of grass.

A bit of the trendy urban feel

and lovely garden rooms.

bubbling water feature

Fire pit with one of my favorite salvias (Bog Sage aka Salvia uliginosa)

A bit of rust.

Vegetable garden


Vitex and coneflower

I will end the tour with my favorite photo. Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo) and bog sage.

Love the front yard, and the small patch of grass is gorgeous. So glad you told us the name of that tree. Saw it in the first photo and it caught my eye.

Thanks for all that work. Beautiful gardens and many of the houses looked interesting too. Thanks for sharing the tour.

In the profound words of Tina Fey (as Liz Lemon), "I want to go to there!"

I'm sorry the tours are coming to an end, I've enjoyed them all very much. The tree is amazing and so are those huge succulents, I have never seen anything like them.

Amazing gardens, so many ideas.
