As you move along the side of the garage to the back gardens you will pass a small garden of zinnias, Russian iris, astilbe and hostas. Along the fence on the side of the property you will enjoy an established perennial garden which blooms from early spring through fall. Over the years the homeowners have collected many pieces of garden art that are sprinkled throughout the garden

Before moving to the Beachway side of the property, don't forget to view the many herb and vegetable pots on the patio  and the raised bed vegetable garden. Along Beachway Rd. part of the property is a hedge of mature hydrangea bushes. If you feel like a short walk, follow Beachway Rd. to the end, make a left and see the Judah Baker windmill and the beautiful Bass River.
    Come back for iced tea and cookies. Enjoy!!

    Garden #2 15 Love Lane, South Dennis
    At the end of a mixed use street, there is a little surprise. Privacy and peace surround this Contemporary Victorian home and gardens. View the hydrangea bordered shell driveway. Sit on the front porch and look out on the park like setting. There are dozens of different hydrangeas, many roses and numerous perennial gardens.  Sit on the rear deck and listen to the trickle of water from the small Koi pond. From the grape arbor walk down the path to the beach on Eagle Pond and you might spot the herons who reside there.
