    #2 The Long and Winding Garden - West Barnstable
     Multiple gardens featuring over 650 plants with an eclectic mix of English cottage garden plants, Japanese Maples, ornamental grasses and hydrangeas. By eliminating my front yard lawn and instead creating multiple gardens, I have met more neighbors and the garden has become a shared experience in the neighborhood. It has changed the way I garden. The front and back gardens are separated by paths and they all reflect my passion for plants.

     #5 Cape Casa - East Harwich 
    From the Owner: I designed and built my traditional Cape style house in 2001 and did some initial landscaping, but my life and my career as a Landscape Architect took me back to Northern California until this past May when I retired here full time. I began a complete refurbishment of all my garden areas with an abundance of new plantings, fences, walkways and of course new plantings which I am still adding to this spring.
    Open for Tours: July 14.

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