Hidden behind a trellis banked in climbing hydrangeas is a garden where I’ve tried to create some beauty and peace for all. 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 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. A Golden Larch seedling will be offered to one lucky visitor.Open for Tours: Saturday, July 8th, Sunday, July 9th, and Wednesday, July 12th, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
