Posted by clematis on Sunday, May 24, 2015

The 2015 ‘Inviting Vines’ Garden Tour was a rousing success this year with well over 300 enjoying the garden at Kinzy Faire, lectures, refreshments and the company of fellow gardeners.

Thanks to all those who attended, the volunteers, and to the garden’s creator, Penny Vogel. What a special place. As Dan Heims commented, “It’s legendary.”

You can read a little about the garden itself here, here, and here.
