Garden Party

If you've ever driven through Little Forest Hills and some of the surrounding 'hoods, then you know how distinctly un-Dallas that part of town can be (if you ignore the encroaching McMansions, that is), with funky artists' homes and haphazard gardens catching the eye as you wind through the streets, which often feel more like South Austin than anywhere in North Texas. If, like us, you've ever wanted to stop your car and stroll through the yards of complete strangers, then the White Rock East Garden & Artisans Tour is for you. Featuring stops in Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills and Casa Linda, the event features a plant sale at 1718 Whittier Ave. and all the art, succulents, hummingbird feeders and city chickens you can handle. Start at the plant sale, where you'll find maps to all the other funky destinations. Visit eastdallasartgardens.blogspot.com for more info.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
