“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is the theme for this year’s Christmas Home Tour sponsored by the Friendswood Heritage Gardeners.

The annual must-see event is the group’s 50th anniversary tour and is set for Nov. 19-20.

Friendswood area homes decorated for Christmas will be part of the tour.

Each year the tour begins at The Marie Workman Garden Center and Briscoe Gardens at 223 W. Spreading Oaks in Friendswood. As in the past, the center will offer holiday baked goods wrapped for gift giving, raffle baskets and refreshments in their tearoom.

Outside vendors at the center and in Briscoe Gardens will offer unique garden art and other items.

The group is making final decisions on this year’s addresses. Any homeowner in the Friendswood area who would like to have their home considered for the holiday tour, can contact the Gardeners at 281-992-4438 or at [email protected]org.

Tickets will be available in early November from any member or at the Center, the Friendswood Chamber of Commerce and various area merchants.

In other Heritage Gardeners news, the group was given a demonstration of creating a dish garden at their October meeting held at the Center recently.

The miniature landscapes were created by Ann Stiefel, Master Flower Show Judge and President of the Newport Garden Club. She discussed size, scale, plants, soil and accessories needed to create a dish garden.
