Garden #1 - Cummaquid
This 17 acre property overlooks Sandy Neck Lighthouse, Barnstable Harbor and Cape Cod Bay. The gardens convey overwhelming beauty and charming originality reflecting knowledge of plants and design. There are several areas of interest such as a pool area, a shade garden, and a grove of trees. Occupied bird houses overlook the bay. Seats and comfortable lounge chairs are placed to invite relaxation. Questions are welcomed by the hostess.
With the uncertain winters as of late, many people are concerned that their hydrangea blooms will suffer or be non-existent the following season. 'Copper-Bottomed Hydrangeas' will focus on some varieties that we know will bloom. This will be Gardens by Barbara Conolly, Inc.'s third year joining us for the Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival, and her first year as a Certified Proven Winners Landscape Professional.
This talk is free. Seating is on a first come first serve basis.
