The gardens are all out here in Minnesota, and they are spectacular!  I love this time of the year since I love gardening and so many gardens are now on tour.  Over the next few days I will be highlighting some of these gardens.  Sit back, and enjoy the tour! 

Our first stop is a home in Minneapolis.  This is a typical sized city lot, but every inch of it was a part of the garden.

The front of the house was beautifully landscaped, but the real fun was in the back!

Back yard with life-size fairy house, koi pond, and so much more.

Koi pond.  Notice the tiny.


Back to the front yard with a stream!

Now on to the next garden...   This garden is also in Minneapolis but the lot size and shape is not typical.

The gardeners are passionate about iris and have an unbelievable collection.  It was the perfect time to see the garden since the iris are in bloom.

Lovely back yard with more iris, a labyrinth in the top right of the photo,  and the knot garden shown below.

Knot garden.

One of the prettiest iris.

Just a few of the many, many iris.

Another iris... but not as colorful!
On to our final tour of this post.  A friend and I signed up for a class on fairy gardens... not so much to learn about them but more to see the instructor's garden. 
This is bigger than it looks... about 4'x4'.

Come back tomorrow for another garden tour!
