June 2023 Garden Tour Summary:

First, explore a classic, family-inspired garden with a mix of sun and shade, a wonderful selection of plants, and many heartfelt touches. Next, discover a whimsical property featuring a functioning pump from the 1930s that still provides water for the garden, and a hand-made wooden foot bridge. The third property features a lush space with an array of plantings, including a hedge of yew shrubs, perennial bachelor buttons, marsh marigold, phlox columbine, peonies, zebra grass, a rose of Sharon, a pine tree and a smoke bush, to name a few. Garden four features mostly native plants, including Canadian wood poppy, prairie drop seed grass, wild ginger, meadow rue, wild indigo and heart leaf aster. The final property of the tour is a magical woodworker’s garden that features a wishing well, a bridge, and lots of artistic flair.
