If you’ll be traveling to New Mexico in early August, you may want to plan a stop in Taos for the Los Jardineros Garden Club’s annual garden and home tour.
I got a nice note from Jeannie Admire of the Los Jardineros Garden Club in Taos inviting WesternGardeners.com readers to join the group for its annual garden and home tour. This sounds like a terrific event for any gardener headed to New Mexico August 7.
The tour includes four private homes with fabulous southwestern gardens. According to the garden club’s website, the tour includes:
A custom built, free form adobe that sits on two landscaped acres featuring a meditation garden.
A contemporary adobe filled with one-of-a-kind furnishings surrounded by architectural outdoor entertaining spaces opening onto natural pinon and sage.
A family home in Ranchitos with water features and an abundant vegetable and flower gardens.
A rambling rancho in Las Colonias surrounded by an orchard and specimen gardens filled with roses, succulents and edibles.
The commercial venue for this year is the Couse Foundation home and workshop. Its historical native gardens are subsidized by the Los Jardineros Grant program and funded by the proceeds from the annual garden and home tour.
If you love the look of desert gardens like I do, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this chance to gather some new ideas for your own garden on the tour.
For mail order tickets, call 575-751-0191 or you can purchase tickets on the day of the event at the Couse Foundation near the Kit Carson municipal parking lot.
