Pond tour time is rapidly approaching! The MPKS 2009 pond tour starts this Saturday (July 18) and runs both this weekend and next. You can buy a tour guide and map for $15 at several gardening locations in the greater Chicago area. My pond will be on the tour on Sunday the 19th – feel free to stop by and say hi.
The Aquascape Chicago pond tour is July 25-26 and is primarily ponds in the far western suburbs. The MPKS tour covers the same region on the same weekend, so you can easily go on both tours at the same time.
Both tours are self-guided, and the ponds are open all day long. It’s a lot of fun to drive around and see how different people’s ponds and yards can be!
