Garden #1
Located at the end of Country Lane, this Master Gardener’s perennial garden has evolved over the past 35 years.  A large Kousa Dogwood is situated out front near an English styled flowering garden.  Day lilies, lupine and Roses greet you as you walk along the path to the back garden. Japanese White Lilac, Stewartia and Hanoki Cypress Trees are also planted along the path.  Six different Hydrangeas bloom on this property including Pinky Winky and Endless Summer.  Raised beds are used for edible plantings along with several utilized for herbs.  An outside dining and sitting area are framed by a pergola covered with Climbing Hydrangea.  Roses blooming near the bubbling water features making this inviting place a cozy, relaxing retreat. Garden Open:  Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Garden #2 
Located in a secluded neighborhood, at the end of the Bass River, is Wrinkle Point, a 60-year old gated community. One Thirza's Way is surrounded with Hydrangeas, which will greet you as you approach the property. As you stroll towards the back of the yard, you will pass various types of Hydrangeas which have been planted over the 50 years the home has been inhabited by four generations of the same family. The backyard has a small English Garden that the owners enjoy from their sun room as they sit and view the activity on Bass River. The embankment leading down to the beach is covered with Rosa Regosa and other wild Cape Cod vegetation. Come and sit on the deck and view the blue Hydrangeas and the Lilies with a calm southerly breeze keeping you cool, as you ponder which garden to visit next on your tour. Garden Open: Tuesday, July 16, 2019 and Thursday, July 18, 2019

Garden #3
At the end of a mixed-use street, there is a little surprise. Privacy and peace surround this home and gardens. View the Hydrangea-bordered shell driveway. Sit on the front porch and look out on a park like setting. Here you will see roses and numerous perennial gardens.  Sit on the rear deck and listen to the soothing trickle of water from the small fish pond. From the beautiful grape arbor, you may stroll down the path to the beach on Eagle Pond, where you just might spot the herons who reside there. Garden Open:  Tuesday, July 16, 2019
