Puddle Jumping Water Garden Tour

Published on August 31, 2021

The new format from the Greater Kansas City Water Garden Society expands access to water garden tours

I had the pleasure of attending one of this year’s six “Puddle Jumping Water Garden Tours” sponsored by the Greater Kansas City Water Garden Society.  

First off, it was great to be out and about seeing pond folks again. I’ve been wanting to attend this water garden tour for a few years. They did something different this year. Instead of having many, many ponds to see in two days, they spread it out over six separate Saturdays from June to September. 

I set off to go to nine featured ponds in one day, and I did just that. I was really impressed with the ponds and their owners, who were happy and eager to share information. 

The icing on the cake was the evening pond party at Linda Harwood’s home. She has a pond to die for, and it was all lit up for nighttime viewing. There was a jazz string quartet, appetizers and adult beverages. 

Glad I was able to finally check the Kansas City Water Garden Society tour off my bucket list!
