VILLAGE OF ELM GROVE – A pair of Elm Grove homes will welcome guests for some outdoor beauty this weekend.
The Elm Grove and Mayfair Park Garden Clubs are teaming up to host their annual Tour le Jardin Saturday, July 15. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature half a dozen unique gardens.
“We have three in Wauwatosa, two of them are in Elm Grove and there’s one in Brookfield just across from Elm Grove,” Elm Grove Garden Club member Janet Wintersberger said.
People who attend the tour will be able to visit the gardens in any order they so choose.
Each garden will have its own unique elements and surprises and plein air artists will be on-hand capturing the scenes. There will also be a marketplace at the Sunset Playhouse, 800 Elm Grove Road, where garden accessories, treasures and plants will be available. A raffle will be hosted for a cart full of gardening supplies.
Tickets are $8 if purchased in advance or $10 on the day of the event. Advance tickets can be purchased at Welke’s House of Roses, 1020 Legion Drive, or the Sunset Playhouse. Tickets on the day of the event will only be available at Sunset Playhouse.

“Gardening is a great escape. It allows you to use your creativity,” Wintersberger said. “It’s therapeutic to go out and get your hands dirty.”
