Fun Committee - Garden Tours July 12,13 and 14th
The Fun Committee would like to invite all Putnam County Master Gardeners and Interns to a tour of three of the Master Gardeners' gardens. The tours will be over three days so that if your schedule doesn't work one day, you may be able to come to the other two.

Tour 1 on Wednesday morning, July 12, 9:30am until we get too hot!
Mickie Loyd's: 1101 Oak Hill Drive, Cookeville, 931 432 0288 or 931 349 0139.
Most of you have been to my place and know I have lots of everything. We can have a dig party, and you can take something home with you to plant. I think the wattle fence might be new to some of you so check it out. If I can build one (husband help), you can too.
Tour 2 on Thursday evening, July 13, 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Linda Anderson's: 2101 Amber Meadow Rd, Cookeville, 931 432 5037.
To get to Linda's house, on Amber Meadow Rd, you will see a mailbox on the left and a dirt road going through a field, into the woods. The house cannot be seen from the road.
Linda has been a "collector" for years and her yard has many wonderful treasures, as well as a log cabin in back of her log cabin house. Her place is a real treasure, and you won't want to miss it. You might even catch a glimpse of Buttons!
Tour 3 on Friday evening, July 14, 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Carol Ludgate's: 2410 N Pointe Cove Circle, Cookeville, 931 520 6355.
Most of you know Carol is a wonderful artist who views her garden with creative eyes. Whimsy is everywhere. You will come away with lots of ideas for your own gardens.
Please make an effort to do these tours. Besides seeing what others do with their gardens. it is a time to visit with each other, beyond the time limits of our monthly meetings. 
See you Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
