"Life in the Walnut Creek Garden" was held on Saturday, May 5, 2012, from 11am-4pm. Five private residential gardens were available for a self-guided tour with knowledgeable docents on each property. It was a great afternoon to stroll beautifully landscaped backyards with water features, kitchen and dining areas, gardening plots, and children's play areas. John Montgomery, the designer and landscape architect of these five gardens was on hand to answer questions along with many extras at each house including  live music by two different bands... a cooking demonstration on Mexican food in honor of Cinco de Mayo... bee keeping and farming professionals...home decor and garden accessories from local artisans... homemade goodies from Quincy's girlfriends...and a raffle to win one of Esin Restaurant and Bar's awarding winning desserts! It was truly a wonderful day in the garden!
