Tour gardens in historic districts Mother's Day

From staff reports
The Decatur Daily

From shaded to sunny and formal to eclectic, you’ll find ideas and inspiration May 8 at the Historic Decatur Garden Tour.

Residents of Old Decatur and Albany historic districts will open their gardens to the public Mother’s Day from 2 to 5 p.m.

The tour is free and self-guided. Participating gardens are identified by tour signs.

“We are very excited to be able to include the newest public garden among our gems to enjoy — the Riverwild Garden for All Children in Delano Park,” said Carol Puckett, Albany tour chairwoman.

A performance by the Decatur Youth Symphony is planned at Riverwild for 2 p.m.

The free concert is sponsored by Dr. Charles Elliott and his children as a Mother’s Day gift to his wife, Sherry Bagwell Elliott. Elliott was the wining bidder at the Rotary Club Daybreak YEA Decatur event silent auction. YEA Decatur supports youth activities in the arts.

Maps and refreshments will be available between the Rose Garden and Riverwild.

For more information, contact the Decatur-Morgan County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 800-524-6181 or 256-350-2028.
