Spring in Bloom
The 10th Annual Valley of the Sun Gardeners Garden Tour showcases nine private gardens around the Phoenix area on Saturday, March 26, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Most of these sites were displayed on previous years' tours. The clever idea is to see how plants grow and landscapes mature within just a few years. Cost is $10. For details on the gardens and purchasing tickets, visit: http://www.phoenixgardeners.org
