Get out and enjoy perfect spring weather during a real rarity – a midweek garden tour.

On Thursday, April 28, the Lincoln Hills Garden Group will host a home garden tour featuring private landscapes in its retirement community.

“Are you ready for some ideas to spruce up your yard, maybe make a few changes, or just enjoy a refreshing look at what others have done with their yards?” say the organizers. “We invite the community to attend this well-received event that the Garden Group sponsors each year through the generosity of homeowners who are willing to share their yards.”

First stop of this tour is Orchard Creek Lodge, 965 Orchard Creek Lane, Lincoln, in Sun City Lincoln Hills.

“Drive through Orchard Creek Lodge entrance portico between 9:30 and 11 a.m. and pick up a packet with driving directions, addresses, and descriptions of each yard,” say the organizers. “There is no need to park and get out as volunteers will be there to hand you a copy.”

The tour packets are $5; please bring exact change if possible, the organizers add.

Nicknamed “Gardeners on the Rocks,” the Lincoln Hills Garden Group welcomes visitors from throughout the greater Sacramento area to this popular tour. Sun City Lincoln Hills is known for its tree-studded community and views of the foothills.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Feb. 18:

It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:

* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.

* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.

* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.

* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.

* Dump excess water out of pots.

* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.

* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.

* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.

* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.

* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
