The editors of Kansas City Homes & Gardens recently blogged about the 9th Biennial John Wornall House Garden Tour coming up on June 5th, and we wanted to follow suit.
This year’s tour offers viewers a chance to visit 7 spectacular gardens. They are all located in Union Hill and just south of the Country Club Plaza and within a short driving distance of each other.
Participants can either start at the Wornall Home or one of the 7 other gardens on the tour. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the tour.The tour runs from 9am to 4:30pm.
*Rist home, 4934 Pennsylvania — You’ll find formal, symmetrical gardens that lead to an outdoor living space with dining area and stone oven.
*Gegen home, 212 E. 30th St., and Stretz/Smith home, 214 E. 30th St. — Two neighbors joined ideas–and yards–to create a secret garden, implementing individual tastes.
*Enos home, 3021 Grand Ave. — A 100-year-old silver maple shades a patio garden with wrought iron furniture and tiered fountain.
*Cirino/Turner home, 201 Westover Road Mary — Protected by a tree canopy, flowering red buds and tulip trees decorate this outdoor area, along with a water feature.
*Turner/Willis home, 1000 Brentwood Circle — This terraced garden shares its space with a charming pond and potting shed.
