The arrival of The Garden Conservancy's Open Days is met with anticipation each year.
This Saturday, the gardens in are my own back yard, so to speak, in some of the most beautiful towns in California: Belvedere Island, the enclave of Ross, and on the Tiburon peninsula,
overlooking the San Francisco skyline and the Bay.

The Open Days Directory lists the four gardens that will be open to the public, or you can purchase discounted tickets, 6 for $25, at the MARIN ART & GARDEN CENTER in Ross in advance, and also on the day of the tour, as well as at each private garden on the day of the tour!

This treasured program is the only national garden-visiting program in America,
and its merits our support.

Attending Open Days allows entrée to alluring landscapes: Designs that call upon bold contemporary elements, and gardens with Victorian, Craftsman, & Asian influences.
Marin is known for breathtaking views and vistas. Imagine!
And then... experience.
