Bedford Garden Walk and TeaThe Bedford community in North Raleigh is hosting our first Bedford Garden Walk and The Tea at Bedford Abbey on May 2nd, 2015. We are very excited about this event and wanted to be sure that all of our fellow gardeners in the Triangle area knew about it and had an opportunity to purchase tickets before they sell out. We have tickets for the Garden Walk, for $20, and tickets for the Walk and Tea are $35. The Garden Walk includes 23 gardens, all located in the Bedford community, so we believe it is possible for our attendees to see all of the gardens in one day. Please visit our website if you would like to know more, or are interested in purchasing tickets. "http://www.bedfordgardenwalk.com/"and share with the rest of your members.
