Updated 04/25/2024


The Coronado Floral Association is holding a Home Front Garden Walk on Saturday, April 20 from 9 am to noon as a community opportunity to view the annual home front judging “best of” homes. During the event, at this year’s Best in the Village home front, 311 9th Street, there will be food, fun, music, and live painting by local artist Tina Christiansen inside the garden gate.

Christiansen will finish the second painting on site en plein air on Saturday. Both paintings will be donated. The homeowner will pick one and the other will be sold at auction by the Coronado Floral Association.

The Secret Garden, painted by Tina Christiansen of 2024 Best in Village Home Front, 311 9th Street.

The title of the painting is “The Secret Garden.” It is a 12 inch square acrylic painting  on birch board. The painting was auctioned to benefit the Coronado Flower Show.

The flowers include:
Rose (far right), delphinium (tall blue spikes center), alstromeria (pink and white trumpet shaped far left), nasturtium (climbing orange flowers), and gazanias (daisy like flowers at bottom) – all of which do very well here with a little care.
