     Four beautiful gardens will be on offer for this year's Members' Only Tour.  The first garden has been developed, according to the homeowner, through 35 years of flood, pestilence, and drought.  The next garden is also an older garden that is home to shade loving plants such as hosta, ivy, irises, in addition to traditional favorites lilacs and russian sage.  The next is a young garden at 4 years old, painstakingly dug by hand by the homeowners, who are avid birdwatchers, and their garden features native plants established to attract butterflies, birds, and bees! The final garden is a large multi-room garden owned and tended by one of Taos' premiere gardeners, so be prepared for a real treat!

    Directions will be sent to every Los Jardineros member on July 1st.  If possible carpool with other members to mitigate parking congestion.
