Whiting’s In Bloom in July

     While the lots in Whiting are little, there’s LOTS going on in these “lots!” Whiting in Bloom Garden Tour will take place on Saturday, July 11, 2020 from 1pm. until 5p.m.  Arts Alive brought back this lovely tradition.  For just $10, you can see 10 gardens in our quaint and unique community of Whiting and Robertsdale.

        Every garden is a reflection of the person who created and tends it.  Today our gardens have virtually become our “summer living room” as more and more people are entertaining and spending more time in their yards.   Even today’s production of so many fun garden accessories from signs to gigantic tin animals (and Whiting seems to have more than its share of decorative iguanas in their gardens), classical pieces, pieces of whimsy….all help the gardener to make his lot his very own masterpiece.

        Come behind the giant hedgerow to see what’s growing in one of Whiting’s larger yards.   

    The Whiting community has many beautiful hidden and unusual gardens and this year’s tour will include 10 of them.   Stay downtown and have dinner in one of our many restaurants and then bring your lawn chairs and come to the first of our terrific  

       Whiting in Bloom is scheduled for Saturday, July 11.  Tickets which are $10 are available at the Chamber of Commerce, Suncatchers, MindBenders Puzzles and Games, J&L This N That Consignment, Center Lounge, and the Chamber. The Chamber is operating on limited hours please call ahead, 659-0292.
