       The fourth annual Fox Open Garden Tour Aug. 2-3 will offer seven sites, all in the Westside area.
       The self-guided tour between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day will allow people to “tour beautiful gardens displaying water-wise gardening techniques for the high- altitude Colorado climate,” an event flyer states. The subhead for the tour is “Westside Garden Story II: Creative Gardening in Challenging Times.”
       Each location will have a Colorado master gardener “to answer questions and ensure customers stay within the boundaries of each garden,” explained Don Bunce, one of the tour organizers.
       Tickets ($20 a person, cash or check only) are available through Aug. 1 at seven locations: Good Earth Garden Center, Phelan Gardens, Rick's Garden Center, Spencer's Garden Center, Harding Nursery, Summerland Garden Center and CSU Extension.
       Proceeds will help the CSU Extension Service.
