    Hidden behind a trellis banked in climbing hydrangeas is a garden where I’ve tried to create some beauty and peace for all. I hope some little surprises will bring a smile as well. This land is part of an area where the Cummaquid people gathered each summer for many years. I try to honor their presence and the presence of others by planting trees that have survived for many millions of years. Several varieties of dawn redwoods, gingkoes, larches, Japanese maples, and hollies are tucked in among native trees. Butterfly bushes, mock oranges, elderberries, coneflowers, and bee balms attract butterflies and birds through summer and fall. Best of all, over 150 varieties of daylilies and hostas are waiting for visitors.

    The proceeds from the garden tours will benefit Whelden Memorial Library. Rain or Shine. Admission: $5. Pay cash at the door.
