“Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With silver bells, and cockle shells, and pretty maids all in
There aren’t any Marys on the 2011 Mogollon Garden Tour, presented by the Rim Area Gardeners from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 25, and a cockle is the common name for small, edible, saltwater clams, finding those on the tour is not likely either. What’s a soul to do? But take heart — there are the bells — not silver, but Bellflowers, Bluebells of Scotland, Canterbury Bells, Coral Bells and Lobella. And that’s just in one garden on the tour. Each year, the Rim Area Garden Club seeks out gardens to be featured on the annual Mogollon Garden Tour. There are six sites included in the 2011 tour. Three are in Payson, with one each in Star Valley, Whispering Pines and Washington Park. Each site will also feature either an artist or musician as part of the tour.
