CLARE — Join the Clare County Arts Council from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 14 for a tour of eight local gardens located in Clare and Farwell. Enjoy a stroll through a wonderful mix of city and country gardens. See these unique gardens showing diverse perspectives on outdoor living space. See a lovely country setting with an informal English garden, ponds with mixes of perennials and annuals.
The Art of Gardening will feature a silent auction of 12 painted and decorated children’s chairs. The chairs are currently displayed in the business windows of downtown Clare. On July 14, the chairs will be located at Tim and Gus Jelnecks garden.
