One doesn't often see a suit of armor in a garden! This was definitely a garden I wanted to see!
On the day of the event, I had to work in the afternoon so only had a couple of hours to see as much as I could. While the map was great, it listed all of the addresses but didn't say which were garage sales, open gardens or both. Given a bit more time, it would have been great to see all of the listings. Anyway, I missed Nadine's garden but later contacted her and she sent more pictures; here they are.
Nadine considers her garden part of her art. "I created Artful Dreamers Studio, new in Tacoma to share ART with everyone. I give workshops to encourage everyone to create. I teach an easy way to paint & more... My husband and I moved from Florida to live closer to our kids in October 2013, where I had a studio and worked with kids, seniors, people in recovery sharing art because I believe art heals everyone & it is tons of fun.

Unfortunately only one person from the event found Nadine's garden. There must have been something strange with the address on the map as I punched a couple into my phone's GPS that returned strange messages about not existing.

Thanks, Nadine, for sending pictures of your garden!
Happy weekend and Happy gardening everyone!
