Learn to Bloom in Summit County Breckenridge Colorado Real Estate

Despite the hailstorm that moved through gardens in Summit County and Breckenridge CO real estate the day before, the sun shined upon the alpine flowers, waters, and musicians for the 22nd Annual Tour of Private and Public Summit County Gardens on Saturday, July 28, 2012.

The Garden Tour demonstrated the outstanding beauty of Breckenridge Colorado homes and environs can be heartily accented by colorful flowers during several months of the year.  Attendees beheld breathtaking alpine blooms in seven secret sites during the tour. Splendid stands of blithe flowers and billowing pots of color adorned gardens, decks, and patios.  An old chair became a receptacle for a petunia display.

Summit Daily News gives us a glimpse of the tour of the best gardens in Summit County real estate.  One of the gardens toured last month has also been featured in national gardening magazines.  Located in an idyllic riverside meadow along the Blue River, the happy garden tended by the Town of Breckenridge and the Garden Club enthralled both the novice gardener and the expert.

Watercolor artists worked in the gardens, capturing the gorgeous blooms to live on through the winter months.A number of artists, including members of “Women of Watercolor”, displayed their paintings and creations for participants.

Starting at the Summit County Community and Senior Center, the tour began with a continental breakfast at 9 o’clock in the morning.  Participants traded in their tickets for a map book at that time, finding out for the first time where to go to see the featured gardens.

The Garden Club is open to all.  Membership brings great company and a free ticket to the annual garden tour and so much more.  The gals take trips, give and attend educational presentations and creative workshops.  They work together in each other’s gardens and raise funds for their scholarship.  And they put on one great Garden Tour in Summit County.  Contact the Summit County Garden Club at info@SummitCountyGardenClub.org for more details.
