Garden tours, Miles Votek’s show and remembering Tim Murphy

<em><strong>Backyard blooms</strong></em>

A reminder: If you haven’t yet purchased your ticket to tour some lovely local gardens in Blooming Backyards this weekend, you can still pick up a “day-of” tickets at Hanna Boys Center where one of the shuttle buses awaits you. Don’t miss these never-before-open-to-the-public gardens, each unique and special. Ann Peden has coordinated this event using more than 200 adept volunteers. If nothing else, stop by Hanna Center, Sunday, June 8, beginning at 9:30 a.m. just to peruse and buy at their crafts fair. Maybe I’ll see you on the shuttle or among the gardens.

<em><strong>Plein errata</strong</em>>

I must correct a recent erroneous note in this column last week, when I said that the Plein Air folks had donated $7,400 to the Sonoma Schools for art education since their inception in 2002. Boy was I off – way off. The truth is the Sonoma Plein Air Foundation has contributed more the $740,000 to Sonoma Valley School for art education for our children. Yay! We so appreciate their work in helping make art an essential part of our children’s education. As it should be. Hip, hip hooray for Sonoma Plein Air Foundation. I thank Judy Young for this good information.
