Fair skies ordered for tour

Some of Nevada's oldest homes open their doors for the 10th year of the Genoa Home & Garden Tour on Sunday. The annual event benefits the Carson Valley Pops Orchestra.

Besides the self-guided tour, the event includes lectures on landscaping and water systems by Jim Vinton of Mountain Shadows Landscape, tips about high desert gardening and critter-resistant plants from Dave Ruff of Greenhouse Garden Center and a talk about shade-tolerant plants and lilacs from Heather Kahabka from Plant It Nursery.

Marilyn Presti of The Event Connection will decorate the Genoa church in a country wedding theme and speak on how to achieve an elegant wedding. Genoa-Carson Valley books donated by Mary Grace Miluck, daughter of the late author Nancy Miluck, will be free to everyone on the tour.

The tour is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12 each and may be purchased at Antiques Plus in Genoa, the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Authority in Gardnerville, Greenhouse Garden Center in Carson City, Timothy Stoll Dentistry at 1625 Highway 395, Suite 201, in Minden and 3351 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite 1, in South Lake Tahoe.
