Angie & Craig Bowald held open gardens on June 30th and July 1st, 2018, and welcomed many visitors to the gardens. Both days were were on the warmer side (in the mid 90's with significant humidity), but the gardens were beautiful. The daylily gardens were in full bloom, and the small waterlily and lotus ponds were beautiful to behold as well. Craig has beds of tropical and accent plants that are just getting going - they need the hot summer heat to reach full potential, and will be beautiful in September when they open the gardens again. Thai Giant was already big though, and amazed a lot of people.
