    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 the garden pathway and savor the sunset from the newest garden destination at the front of the property. Date(s) Open for tours: July 8th 9:30-4 and 9th 10:30-4


    Garden #2 A Cocktail Garden
    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! Date(s) Open for tours: July 8th and July 9th -  10-3 PM (last visitors arrive at 3)
