Garden tours celebrate spring

By Denise Stewart 

The Scripps-Mesa Garden Club is taking advantage of the beautiful gardens and talents of its members with tours around the flora blooming on the Ranch.

Moving outdoors from their cooler weather meetings at the local library, the gardeners get to celebrate the beauty of nature and their endeavors to propagate it.

In late May, Sal Castellito, a devoted hobbyist in propagating flowers, will be hosting a tour of the abundant blooms in his backyard.

Another tour of professionally designed landscaping at a local retirement residence will take place in June. That will include decorative landscaping and private patio plants, as well as a community garden as the focus.

Scripps-Mesa Garden Club has a website to share its enjoyment and knowledge of gardening. Check it out: scrippsmesagardenclub.com.
