Tabor, MN

This past weekend, Doug and I also participated in our local Garden Tour. Our final stop was outside of Grand Forks, near Tabor, MN. Irene Larson has been planting her gardens, adding to them and modifying them, for some 30 years. You'll see more photos from this garden in the coming days, but here are a few of her gorgeous perennials. To get to her farmland/garden, we took flat, desolate, roads across the countryside, and for the last 1 1/2 miles on a gravel road, followed this vehicle:

Don't you just hate bumper-to-bumper, congested traffic?





An especially nice touch at this stop was the young woman playing classical music on a clavinova in the garden gazebo. And the homemade cookies and lemonade weren't bad either!

Those are beautiful gardens, love that last shot. I kill everything I've ever planted so I have to live vicariously through others.

Beautiful garden shots. Imagine it was a nice soother with the music, cookies and flowers - especially after following that contraption.

Looking forward to seeing more! I love the "traffic" since we have both that kind and the usual kind around here:)

Sounds like a great place to stop, so pretty and relaxing! :)

I'm really liking how the brick is looking, but it is so much work. All of those brick nooks & crannies, ugh!
