The 2011 Ypsilanti Garden Walk is coming up on Saturday, Aug. 20, from noon to 5 p.m. Don't miss your chance to see six late-summer gardens.
This year's walk showcases six gardens, which visitors can tour in any order:
Water garden magic: An established garden with a mix of annuals and perennials, plus ponds, rivers and waterfalls.
Grandma's park: A park-like garden for adults and kids to enjoy. Plants grown through plant-sharing of divisions and extras.
Ypsilanti Senior Center and Rose Garden: These two gardens feature the scents of roses and lavender, spots for birds and butterflies, a shady area for hostas and sedum, and lily and perennial beds.
Cut flower garden: This garden is home to Good Scents Gardens and features more than 50 species of flowers grown for cutting.
Woodland secrets: A perennial garden tucked into the trees. Recycled items turn into garden art vignettes like Shady Ladies and Fairy Land.
Golf getaway: This garden takes inspiration from the golf course next door. It features a golf theme and many summer-blooming clematises.
The walk takes place on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine (addresses are provided on the tickets). Tickets are $10 and available prior to the day of the tour at:
