The private gardens of real gardeners Kit and Mark Grote will be open to the general public as a fundraiser for the City of Covington, Louisiana’s beautification organization, Keep Covington Beautiful, next Saturday only in the morning. Try to take time to see this true garden gem. If you like gardens and horticulture, I suspect you’ll be amazed at the variety of combinations of garden plants and the inventive artwork – self built architectural features, and really fun outdoor sculptures.
