The Creston Valley Garden Club tours on Saturday included an opportunity to see the garden of Marilyn and Fred Smailes.

“Fred and Marilyn’s garden shows how a typical ‘yard’ and house can be transformed into an inviting garden and charming home in just a few short years,” said the tour brochure. “A wooden meditation area behind the house provides a soothing backdrop for colorful flowerbeds and a large gazebo.”
