Butcher's Hill garden tour

what's more natural than a knitimal in a garden?

if you're looking for a new kind of urban adventure and have never tried it before, you should definitely come out this sunday for the butcher's hill garden tour

this Sunday, June 8 from Noon-5 p.m., home owners and garden enthusiasts all over Butcher's Hill,
will open up their gardens to the masses to show off the backyard beauty. Described by the city paper as "Urban gardens and "artists along the way"", this is a great way to spend time outdoors, meet new people, take in some gorgeous urban gardens and do a little art shopping along the way!

butcher's hill, which encompasses the area between Washington Street to Patterson Park, and East Pratt Street to East Fairmount Avenue, is one of Baltimore City's best preserved historic neighborhoods. In addition to a wide range of sizes and styles in classic two- and three-story brick row houses, the neighborhood includes some outstanding one-of-a-kind examples of Queen Anne architecture and other notable gems from the mid to late 19th Century.
