Public areas in town are decorated with planters full of seasonal flowers
Private residences are encouraged to sign up for garden walks to show off their blooms
Members of the garden club were setting up at the gazebo. There were maps of the walking tours and demonstrations of various planting techniques along with plant sales and activities for children. The gazebo and town square above it (where I was standing) are adjacent to the marina so boaters were out and a helicopter was buzzing about.
Most of the activities were scheduled for 11 AM to 3 PM but I had already been out since 7 AM so I avoided the heat and the crowds. Before I left I did go in search of one of the butterflys
