2019 Northfield Garden Tour theme: WE ARE WATER

 Garden Owner/Address Description Artist Description
 1: Beth Kallestad

755 Lathrop Drive
 Beth has been a research scientist.  Water is a resource of special interest, evident in her attempts to catch and hold water.
 Allan Mattison I concentrate on watercolors and acrylics to explore landscapes.  Our world is one large garden
 2: Mark & Judy Code

     912 Highland
This garden showcases shrub roses and David Austin roses, 15 varieties of clematis, spring wildflowers, a wisteria-covered  pergola and a small vegetable garden with salad fixings and flowers for a Northfield Shares party CraigSwenson Wood carving keeps me busy designing and carving signage to fit individual interests
 3: All Saints Episcopal Church
419 Washington St
 This rain garden was made possible through a grant with the Rice County Community Partners Conservation Sub-Grant Program Karen Olseth I have a series of painting themes: patterns in water, pathways-both architectural and natural, travels to Iceland and Ireland
 4: Bee-Butterfly-Dragonfly & Pergola Gardens, at Riverside/Lions Park
      700 7th St E
Enjoy the Cannon River while seated under the pergola with hanging wisteria.  Note the three unique raised-bed pollinator gardens, projects created by Northfield in Bloom through a Northfield Shares grant. Joe May I've found the most profound adventures follow stepping off with a single bag of gear and a camera.  Encapsulated by water on all sides, Iceland is deeply connected to its elemental roots
 5: Elizabeth Olson

2412 Pepper Ridge Ct
 Plants have been selected to preserve and conserve water. Note controls of water run-off: nine terraces, a berm in lowest corner, mini-rain garden, two rain barrels, and mulch.   Jen Wolcott I put things in my garden to see if they work.  I like steel-strong and quiet.  I use simple geometric forms-they don't fight for attention waiting for winter to take center stage
 6: John & Carrie Duba

5525 Endwood Trail
 One of Star Tribune's "six most beautiful gardens of 2015", it includes a prairie wildflower hill, cutting flower gardens, herb beds, raspberry bushes, resting spots with unimpeded views of the Cannon River Valley Gail Gates
 Water.  As a photographer, i am drawn to its energy, feel its power, and come away renewed.  My digital creations are not meant to replicate nature's perfection, but to embrace the impression of emotion and wonderment.
