This Saturday, June 28 will be the ninth garden tour featuring 10 different gardens.

The tour is self-directed with a map and brief description of each garden. Tickets are available at The Beanery and at the Summerland Visitors Centre on Highway 97.

Not only will you be able to enjoy gardens that have been lovingly tended and designed by their owners the but the ticket proceeds will go to improve the lives of deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired as well as contributing to special needs in the community.

Her subject is mainly animals and local scenery.
