Summer has arrived, and Edmonds in Bloom volunteers in June canvassed neighborhoods and the downtown Edmonds Business District “planting” Edmonds in Bloom flags in front-yard gardens and storefronts containers — their way of saying “thank you” to local gardeners for helping to make Edmonds beautiful.

The annual Edmonds in Bloom Garden Tour is Sunday, July 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Early-bird tickets are $20; day of tour tickets are $25 (if available). The number of tickets sold this year will be limited, and tickets are selling fast. Tickets are on sale in downtown Edmonds at Bountiful Home, FIELD, and Garden Gear & Gallery, and at Sky Nursery in Shoreline.  Will-call tickets are available online at edmondsinbloom.com.Proceeds from the Garden Tour help support a variety of projects and activities in the community.
