Hope everyone comes out and visits all the beautiful gardens in the different Pleasanton neighborhoods, even Ruby Hill. It looks like the weather is going to be great this year and it's fun to see what neighbors have done in their yards. I know I always get new ideas. It's a great way to spend a lesiurely Sunday afternoon and help support all the dogs and cats at Valley Humane Society. I'll be working at one of the gardens and hope to see you all there.

i want to come and support the animals but $35 to $40 seems a little steep to me. If I come with my hubby, it is $70- $80 for the afternoon. What justifies the cost? It seems like an event that should be $15 - $20 per ticket
