We just wanted to thank everyone for visiting us yesterday! Preliminary estimates are that about 1,200 people came through the six gardens on Sunday's tour, making it the largest turnout ever in Pasadena! The weather could not have been better; it was truly a gorgeous day, and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!
Special thanks to Gale Kohl of Gale's Restaurant in Pasadena for providing the marvelous homemade biscotti at the guest table, to Steven Carmona and Tommy Farmer of Tommy Farmer Studios for their expertise in making sure everything was perfect, to Pasadena Awning for their great work, and, of course, to the great Garden Conservancy team, for making all of this possible! And we are all indebted to the owners of these magnificent properties for investing in a legacy of beauty and so graciously allowing us to enjoy the fruits of their labor! Thanks again to everyone!
