Last Friday we published a list of upcoming garden tours happening this summer throughout Western New York. Here are two more to consider:
The Akron in Bloom garden walk is scheduled for noon to 4 p.m. July 12. It's a fund-raiser for the Newstead Historical Society, which owns and operates the Rich-Twinn Octagon House in the Village of Akron.
Presale tickets are $5 (buy them at Bedford's Greenhouse, 6820 Cedar St., Akron); tickets are $7 the day of tour. The tour begins at the Octagon House, 145 Main St., Akron, where maps will be distributed. Rain or shine.
Also: Clarence Hollow In Bloom will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 18. On tour day, $5 buys you a ticket and a map; purchase them at the Pavilion at the back of the Clarence Hollow Farmers' Market. The market is located on Main Street between Ransom and Salt roads in Clarence.
Ticket sales begin at 9 a.m., which allows you time to shop the market.
