LETTER: This year’s tour was spectacular

Hats off to VCA for producing a wonderful garden tour.

The gardens were spectacular, and a huge group of loyal and loving volunteers set the tone. They were welcoming, enthusiastic and well informed. Excellent signage made for easy navigation of both the island and the gardens. The descriptions in the brochure were inviting, and the whole weekend was smoothly orchestrated. It was a delightful tribute to the art of gardening on Vashon.
