Garden Tour and Scuba Diving

The Yavapai Country Master Gardener Tour was held last Saturday. Unlike the local garden tour this one involved several communities and was limited to master gardeners and members of garden clubs. We picked up a map and descriptions of the gardens at a nursery in Cornville. The nursery was an unexpected pleasant surprise. We took time to tour the facilities

We visited one garden in Camp Verde, one in Rimrock and two in Oak Creek. The fifth and final garden was in Sedona but we didn't have time to stop.

In the afternoon we were in Cottonwood at the home of the instructor who taught the scuba class last February. He has a 12 feet deep salt water pool and invited us to use the pool for a refresher of skills we learned in the class. At the end of the afternoon we packed our equipment in preparation for a trip this weekend. Tomorrow afternoon we meet a group in Cottonwood, drive to Nogales, spend the night and drive to San Carlos, Mexico, Friday morning.

Next week I'll have photos of sea lions!

A Camp Verde yard. I enjoyed the openness and simplicity.

This yard in Rimrock had a wide variety of trees, shrubs, flowers and herbs.

This house in Oak Creek featured a Mexican theme. The photo doesn't reveal the cost of this house which probably exceeded $1 million.
