The LYStour started with beautiful weather and a bit of a downer. Someone stole our willow tree.
When I toured the Chinese Garden in West Seattle, I learned that these trees were called friendship trees. After a visit, you gave your friend a snip of your tree, they planted it in their yard and as it grew they remembered you. So sorry they have to take the whole tree--no friendship vibes for those characters as far as I'm concerned.
The rest of the day and tour turned out to be beautiful with wonderful people coming through our store. We had 96 drawing entries the first day and 312 during the whole tour. We hope you had a good time on the tour and look forward to doing it again next year.
