Coeur d'Alene Garden TourCoeur d'Alene Garden TourHere is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: CdA tour lets visitors explore others’ labors. As you can guess, it’s a preview of next Sunday’s (July 14th) Coeur d’Alene garden tour, which is put on by the Coeur d’Alene Garden Club.
