Garden Tour to Benefit Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary Orleans Branch:The Singing Marshes
This interesting garden borders conservation land and overlooks Barnstable Harbor and the Lighthouse at Sandy Neck. Down a narrow road, among the oaks and pines, the gardener has her own kitchen garden containing raspberries, blueberries, and vegetables such as asparagus, rhubarb, squash, beans, and cucumbers. The unique fencing was fashioned to keep out deer, foxes, rabbits and other wildlife. The property features walking paths through the beach plum and juniper shrubs to views of the marsh beyond. Hydrangea’s flourish on the home’s North side. An interesting arbor, constructed by a friend from small cedar trees stands by the garden shed. This is a rare opportunity to visit this special place, which has never been open for public viewing.
The proceeds from this garden tour will benefit the Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary- Orleans Branch. Rain or Shine. Admission: $5. The garden is open July 12 and July 14, 10 am - 4 pm
