Taylorville’s thirteenth annual Garden Walk is June 21, from 8 am to 4 pm. This year’s theme is “Legends and Lace,” and it will take place rain or shine. The price of admission entitles guests to a free plant, a garden hat, complimentary tea at Hickory Estates all day, and entry into flower arranging contests.
Highlights this year are: “Lilies of the Field”, a double wide garden filled with 600 varieties of lilies; a high-profile vegetable garden on a high-traffic corner; a container garden at an apartment building; river rock lined garden beds filled with a wide variety of perennials; and more than one garden with a water feature. A “red Angus burger farmhouse lunch” will be served from 10 – 1 at the Christian County Farm Bureau, so bring your appetite.
We are really looking forward to the garden walk at our Central Illinois bed and breakfast. It is always fun to see what members of our community are up to in their gardens. There is always at least one garden that is unknown to us, hidden away somewhere and full of delights; and we always enjoy hearing about what guests of our Illinois bed and breakfast have discovered during the Garden Walk.
