Garden tour features poster by Anne Kerfoot

The 10th annual Artful Garden Tour -- a tour of nine gardens in Hudson and River Falls -- is Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29. Hours are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday 1 to 4 p.m.

This year's official poster, "Flower Basket," by award-winning artist Anne Kerfoot, celebrates the hanging flower baskets in the city of Hudson and will be available for sale on the tour. Kerfoot, who loves to paint, did a second poster for this tour -- "Pansies," which will also be for sale on the tour.

The Hudson Women's Club sponsors the tour, which will begin, as usual, at the Victorian gardens of the Octagon House Museum, 1004 Third St. Attendees may purchase tickets at the Octagon House on the days of the tour.

The event features gardens filled with flowers and art, as artists will be displaying and demonstrating their works among the blossoms.

Kerfoot did the poster for the first Artful Garden Tour 10 years ago and this year her garden is featured on the tour. She will be signing posters in her garden. Kerfoot's posters and posters from previous tours will also be available for sale at The Octagon House.

Proceeds from the tour will go to the hanging flower baskets in Hudson. Tickets are $12. For more information, call (715) 386-7787.
