Wing Haven Garden tour kicks of its 20th annual spring Gardeners Garden Tour this season with an expansion into South Charlotte, including three lush Ballantyne gardens among its seven private gardens. The beauty of this tour is that it is hosted by true gardeners, says Wing Haven executive director, Barrett Ranson. These gardens are the vision and hard work of these dedicated and talented homeowners whose hands have brought beauty and life into their gardens. We are thrilled to have so many resplendent gardens open their gates. The tours will be held on Saturday, May 10 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Sunday, May 11 (1 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Tickets, which are $30 through May 9 and $35 the day of the event, are available online atwww.winghavengardens.comand in person at Wing Haven Gardens and Blackhawk Hardware. ¬Genevieve Becker
