    A Special Garden Tour for GRC Members!

    Julie Carley and Gary Mosiman are extending an invitation to GRC members to visit their extensive hosta and flower gardens!

    Gardens contain over 850 varieties of hostas in addition to a vast array of colorful flowers.They began their garden in 1986 using hostas since they had a lot of tree shade. They still love hostas, though it’s become sunnier due to losing 70 elms over the years. Luckily, the plants were fine with more sun.

    They were on the MN Landscape Arboretum Auxiliary Garden Tour in 2007 and 2014. Their garden was one of 10 on the American Hosta Society 2010 National Convention garden bus tour and they will be on the 2020 tour when the AHS National Convention again comes to MN. They’ve had fun welcoming many local garden clubs to their gardens over the years. They love to share it.

    This event is free and open to GRC members and their guests

    You are invited to view the gardens on Saturday, July 13, from 1-4 p.m. (rain or shine). Bring your sketching materials and cameras, as these gardens are a beautiful source of inspiration.For a preview click on this link to an article by a garden blogger from Texas who visited it on a tour. https://www.penick.net/digging/?p=39929.

    Julie is a GRC member who has a special passion for drawing hostas using graphite. She is also attracted to other finds in her garden such as mushrooms and lichens. Click on the link to Julie’s gallery on the GRC website - http://www.grcbotanicalartists.org/page-1795058
