Garden Tour to Benefit The Sampson Fund for Veterinary Care: Pollinator Paradise
- Dates: July 14, 2023
- Location: Orleans
- Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Forever evolving over 20 years the garden is for birds, butterflies and bees. Enter next to the garage along the damp garden with winterberry and clethera. The hummingbird garden surrounds the sunroom. Wander the yard past the Pagoda Dogwood and up into the woodland which is planted with American Holly and native shrubs under the canopy of Eastern red cedars, which are slowly dying out. Return to the yard along the pollinator native plant border and note the large central garden that blooms in August/September. On your left you will pass the stone riverbed designed to control erosion. Stop on the patio for a rest and enjoy the pollinator container garden. Exit on the north side to the shade hardscape garden. Notice all the whimsical statuary, including birdhouses, many of which are occupied. Make sure to look for the oriole nest, but mostly ENJOY. Date(s) Open for tours: Sunday, July 9 and Friday, July 14.
The proceeds from the garden tour will benefit The Sampson Fund for Veterinary Care. Admission:$5 per garden. Rain or Shine.
