Months ago, members of Englewood's Lemon Bay Garden Club began preparing unique crafts, propagating native plants and selecting unique gardens to feature on their Fall Garden Tour scheduled for this weekend.

"It's a two-day, three-tiered event," explained Gail Choate, who has helped organize and publicize the group's fundraising events for the past 10 years. "What locals and visitors may not realize," adds Choate, "is that the club owns a historic property on the corner of Yale and Cedar Street, and we open our gardens as part of the annual tour. Our beautiful butterfly garden is located on the west side of the clubhouse, and visitors are invited to stroll along Woods Walk, view the new cactus/succulent garden and rest on eco friendly benches before heading to a colorful display of bromeliads."
