    Come see what a Master Gardener can accomplish in 3 growing seasons!  Starting with a totally wooded lot, Donelle and her husband moved into their newly built home in June 2018.  Donelle designed her gardens from a totally bare slate!  In three years, she has designed what she thinks of as ‘garden rooms.’  One ‘room’ is a small fruit free orchard surrounded by beds of hosta, hydrangeas, dogwoods and perennials with an arbor with a bench for sitting and reading.  A water feature is the star attraction of the ‘room’ with one of the oldest oak trees in Eastham and an extensive perennial garden.  Another ‘room’ is a memory garden with graceful white cast iron seating, evergreens, Japanese maples, azaleas, ornamental grasses and blueberry and raspberry bushes.  A vegetable garden ‘room’ features a large raised bed planter as well as in ground tomatoes, eggplant, garlic, rhubarb, asparagus and other tasty delights.  Walking through a second arbor, you come to the last ‘room’ which features a gazebo, ornamental grasses, daylilies, kwanzan cherry trees and dogwoods.  Set against a backdrop of Rock Harbor marsh in the front and Cape Cod bay in the back, this garden is sure to offer something for everyone.
