FALLBROOK – Myrtle Creek Botanical Gardens & Nursery has shaped the property into what is now being called a “San Diego Destination” by visitors near and far.
Stroll through the 30-acre property and take in the beautiful renovations, including the newly added Butterfly Garden and Wild Bird Sanctuary.
The newly added coffee shop at Café Bloom – now open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. – serves café latte, mocha, iced tea, or lemonade with a slice of the famous Myrtle Berry Pie on the serene garden deck.
On weekends, Café Bloom continues to entice guests with farm fresh, organic lunch offerings and is now featuring “Picnic Baskets for Two.” Guests can choose a scenic picnic spot under the live oaks and enjoy a farm fresh lunch, drinks and dessert for two. On Saturdays, enjoy live music on the garden terrace.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the Art Fair at Myrtle Creek Gardens on Saturday and Sunday, June 21 and 22, which promises to be an engaging event. Throughout the gardens, handpicked artisans will demonstrate their craft – from bending wire, crafting musical instruments, cutting stained glass, and shaping wood to blowing glass beads, creating pottery and painting. Listen to the sounds of the amazing 3rd Coast Jazz Band on both days of the event.
Acclaimed artist Michael Jacques, whose work is displayed at The Smithsonian, will hold a free seminar at the Art Fair on Sunday, June 22 at 10 a.m.
The seminar, titled “You Are an Artist”, will teach you how to release the artist within you. You can pre-register now by calling (760) 728-5340. Seating is limited.
Jacques has donated an original, framed painting (36 x 40), valued at over $2,000, to be raffled at the Art Fair in support of the Boys and Girls Club of North County. Raffle tickets can be purchased now at Myrtle Creek Gardens and at the Art Fair.
Also at the Art Fair, artist Kira Corrillo Corser will be displaying her works of art and showcasing garden art design. Corser is involved in Sea Changes, a national project and collaboration of scientists and artists promoting ocean awareness and stewardship.
