On Saturday June 24 our club journeyed to Grand Forks via bus for the Grand Forks Horticultural Society Garden Tour and shopping at three garden centers.  Thirty members and guests attended.  Our first stop was at Wagner's Landscape and Nursery in East Gand Forks.  Roger Wagner entertained and informed us about recent gardening experiences he has been undertaking.  We were given the opportunity to fill a large box (which usually held strawberries) with assorted annuals for $20.  The bay of the bus quickly began to fill up.  Our next stop was at the plant sale sponsored by the Horticultural Society as well as taking in the peony show.  Two yard tours were experienced prior to lunch and three more following lunch.  Between tours we shopped at All Seasons Nursery where annuals were buy one, get one free and an additional 10% discount on purchases not on sale.  Next stop was at Shea's Nursery where several members found flowers they had been looking for.  We completed our day by visiting  the Grape Mill Vineyard and Winery which is the only vineyard and winery in Polk County and the furthest north in Minnesota.  Wine was sampled and purchased.  A good time was had by all and much appreciation goes to Margaret Rundlett-Doom for planning and organizing this event.
