 If you love antiques, historic homes and flowers, Pontiac is the place to be on Saturday (July 16.)  It’s the ninth annual Garden and Historical Home Tour.

It will blow you away!

It blew me away, when I got a sneak peek earlier this week, thanks to Pat David.

She and her husband own the incredibly beautiful Murphy House Bed and Breakfast on Franklin.

Pat’s garden is an old-fashioned garden.  Flowers galore.  Wind chimes made of tea cups.  Whimsical.  Wonderful.

The tour goes from 9am-5pm on Saturday. It begins at the Creative Arts Center (47 Williams.)

The tour features 11 different homes and gardens, plus tea and crumpets.  Lemonade and cookies.  And an ice cream social along the way.

This is Pat’s bed and breakfast on Franklin. pontiac garden tour 0511 Heaven Right Here in Pontiac

Meticulously decorated.

 The other homes and gardens on the tour are also fantastic!
