Saline walk shows off great gardens while honoring veterans
If you want to see some truly great gardens - and maybe get some ideas or helpful tips for tending your own blooms - the Saline Stone and Thistle Garden Club is hosting a garden walk on Saturday, rain or shine.
Between 10 a.m.-4 p.m., participants will be given guided tours of five private and one public garden in the Saline area. The show’s theme is “In the Pink,” and proceeds from the event will be used to honor veterans with a Blue Star Memorial at the Saline Public Library and for breast cancer research via the St. Joseph Mercy Health System.
The whereabouts of the gardens on the tour will be revealed Saturday, with pink balloons and signs pointing the way. There will also be a flower show, courtesy the Sunshine Arrangers Guild, at the Saline library from 10-a.m.- 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Tickets are $10 on the day of the walk or $8 in advance.
