 “We’ve been steadily busy, which is nice,” said Susan Sour, one of the principals of My Mother's Garden, which offered freshly cut flower arrangements.

There were several tents and kiosks representing area gardening clubs and non-profit organizations.  Some attendees came to walk the street and browse the booths, while others came with a goal in mind.

Vendors all agreed they couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Betsy Lyons of the Grapevine Garden Club said their booth saw plenty of returning customers, who particularly look forward to taking home the club's tomato plants.
