LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Despite the heat, some gardens around town are still thriving.
This weekend is the 19th Annual Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour.
The walking tour features ten gardens and a carriage house within the Old Louisville Historic Preservation District.
Ann Triplett's garden is among the ones featured.
She says she has taken her grandmother's advice on what plants can withstand the heat, and only waters them at a certain time of the day.
"Never water it after 8:00 in the morning and preferably not before 9:00 or 10:00 at night when the sun goes down because you're gonna end up frying them," says Triplett.
The Garden Tour is hosted by the Second Street Neighborhood Association.
It continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
