Mother’s Day weekend is the perfect time to visit newly emerging gardens and newly created art. It’s a marriage of outdoor splendor with regionally acclaimed artists showing their latest works of art. Tour seven gardens and see the artist demonstrate their work. From South Holland to M-89 near Fennville, you can wander through gardens in Holland, Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville. It’s a short hop from one to the other. Get the map to all seven here: www.artzandgatrdenz.com
Bloom Festival 2018 July 7-8 & 14-15
When is the lavender in bloom? The end of June and the month of July is when. Lavender flowers are at their peak the first two weeks of July. They carpet the fields in shades of blue and purple. The whole place carries the aroma of lavender.
Time for a festival to celebrate the bloom!! Last year festival goers took home bouquets of cut lavender to dry and enjoy throughout the year, wreaths made of lavender were in abundance, face painting, massage, and more were all part of the first bloom festival.
