AAUW to present Country Garden Tour of Fallbrook on Sat., May 10


Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Issue 17, Volume 18.


FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) presents a Country Garden Tour of Fallbrook on Sat., May 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year the tour will be composed of five residential gardens and a bonus of a visit to a dragon fruit plantation.

The event will commence from the Palomares House, 1815 Stagecoach Lane where there will be complimentary refreshments and garden related merchants. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $25, or $20 prior to the tour at Major Market, 845 Main Ave.; Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, 111 Main Ave., or by calling (760) 728-4459.

The tour will include some serious walking along meandering paths and large spaces. At one garden, visitors will be treated to a walk along a labyrinth of raised stone topped with blue fescue, arbors covered with graceful wisteria, secluded sitting nooks, putting greens and splendid views.

Another garden has a Tuscan feel with its graceful driveway lined with sculptures, shrubs, trees and colorful pots. Keep Advertisement

on going and see how gardens today are full of water saving succulents as colorful and dramatic as any plant can be.

A southwestern pueblo house on the tour is complemented by an array of cacti, aloes, and agaves and other drought-tolerant plants. A peek down the slope shows cabernet vines carefully nurtured. Succulents abound in colorful array along with raised vegetable beds featured in a very unique garden.

One garden features a charming tree house, private meditating areas and a fruit orchard. Pools and fountains abound, along with open spaces and magnificent views. For those who choose to visit the dragon fruit "plantation," there will be experts to tell about growing this delicious fruit. At the top of the property, blueberries, pineapple and common garden vegetables are grown and they also have a rainwater reclamation set-up.

All are invited to join Fallbrook AAUW in their tribute to spring and enjoy all the charms Fallbrook offers on this Mother’s Day weekend. All proceeds from the garden tour go to local scholarships.

Thank you, Fallbrook AAUW!


My dear fellow Fallbrookers, I once again urge you to PLEASE spruce up your properties a bit. Come on, folks, it's spring. Let's get some fresh air. Enjoy life. Go outside and smell the fresh air. Heck, are we, Fallbrookers, the luckiest folks on earth or what?! Aren't we?

Look where we live: sheer paradise!

If you've never tried gardening, try it, folks. You'll get hooked. Gardening has GREAT physiological as well as psychological benefits. It's good for you! Plus, you'll have a beautiful property, community and town. Everybody wins!

Let's give Fallbrook AAUW thousands of beautiful properties to choose from instead of only a few dozen. Let's make Fallbrook even MORE beautiful!

Thank you.
