    Garden#1 California Designer, Dorrit Kingsbury, Creates Her Own Four Season, Layered and Sculptural Garden in Osterville 
    Designed to wow the senses with elegance and folly, this landscape invites both lively gatherings and peaceful respite. Using color as a sculptural element and evergreens for year-round definition and flair, the contrasting textures and forms feel luxurious yet accessible. Distinct focal points draw the viewer to visit the firepit shrouded by cherry trees, wind in and out of the hornbeam topiary arches, settle onto the bench at the end of a garden pathway, and savor the sunset from the newest garden destination at the front of the property.
    Open for tours: Saturday, July 9th , 10 – 3 and Sunday, July 10, 11-3 (last visitors arrive at 3)

    Garden #2 Italian Inspired Renaissance - Osterville
    A touch of "Italian Inspired Renaissance" just off Seaview Avenue Osterville! You've just got to see the gardens surrounding a 50 foot lap pool, set in understated stone, flanked by potted begonias, hibiscus and evergreen. The refreshing oasis of water reflects the tasteful palette of color... absolutely breathtaking under a sunny sky. 2 Chinese Lions and a tranquil Buddha watch over this outdoor retreat that would be right at home along the Amalfi Coast. Open for tours: Saturday July 9th 10-3 PM and Sunday July 10th 10-3 (last visitors arrive at 3)

    Garden #3  A Cocktail Garden - Osterville
    Mint Juleps and Mojitos pair perfectly with the serenity of this backyard cocktail garden off Bumps River Road. But before you find your way to the secret retreat complete with an herb garden, cutting garden and potting shed, the front of the residence is awash in blossoms blue... with over 30 hydrangeas painting a panorama of Cape Cod class. Garden enthusiasts will find of especial interest the cutting garden and potting shed which pair with this landscape. Imagine fresh flowers cut for dinner and patio all season long!
