Sunday is time to tiptoe through the tulips and boogie through the bermuda–The Colleyville Garden Club (www.colleyvillegardenclub.org) will hold Promenade, its spring garden tour.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., four residential gardens will be on view to the public. At each home, Colleyville Garden Club members will be available to answer questions about each of the diverse gardens selected this year.

The gardens were chosen to offer a variety of landscape designs. Event attendees will be treated to yards featuring roses, herbs, vegetables and varying color palettes with both sunny and shade-loving designs.

One garden selection, created by a landscape designer, was given a Thai theme and features native and adapted herbs. Another site sits on one acre and was converted from pasture to a variety of garden areas.

Yet another garden, designated as a National Wildlife Habitat, focuses on organic methods, balancing entertaining spots with natural areas. The fourth showcases a yard with a minimum of grass and beds designed to be easy-care.

Tickets to Promenade are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the tour at local retailers. Locations include Foreman’s and Market Street in Colleyville, Blooming Colors and Marshall Grain Co. in Grapevine, Green Mama’s Organic Garden Center in North Richland Hills and

Proceeds will fund Colleyville Garden Club’s projects and charities. Past projects have included establishing an outdoor learning center at Colleyville Elementary School, planting Arbor Day trees at Cross Timbers Middle School, a college scholarship and maintaining civic gardens.
