Garden  #2:  1 Thirza's Way,   Wrinkle Point,  West Dennis,  MA  02670
Please come visit this garden by the sea. The property is surrounded by hydrangea bushes...many of these bushes were planted by the original owner and they still bring much joy to the garden today. Photos of the garden can be found in Joan Harrison's book Hydrangeas Cape Cod and Beyond. As you stroll through the yard mixed in with the colorful bushes will be other perenials including the Patrick J.Cronin Day Lilies propagated by the present day owner's grandfather. As you journey to the backyard the owner's small but much loved English Garden springs to view along with a wonderful view of Bass River and beyond. End your visit by sitting on the inviting deck with comfortable rocking chairs or venture down to the dock and enjoy the calm that only the sea can bring.
