    With summer in full swing, it’s time to slow down and enjoy the beautiful season Alexandria has to offer. On Sunday, July 12, from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM, the Douglas County Master Gardeners present their annual Tour of Gardens. The Tour of Gardens is a great opportunity to see a diverse variety of horticultural masterpieces right here in Douglas County. Five local gardens are included in this year’s tour, each with its own individual style and theme.
