Where Nature and Nurture Meet

scented garden
Be captivated by the variety of garden features that await you on Sheila and Randy Garry's half acre property. Walk the paths through the perennial beds, just as they do each morning, to delight in new emerging or blooming plants and to plan the improvements they constantly make. As you stroll the paths, listen to the waterfall in the small fish pond and enter the "quiet area" where the ferns beckon and a bench awaits. Throughout the garden you see evidence of the owners’ love of scented plants like the shrub clethra and the upright cimicifuga. The fragrant gray green leaves of the Vitex will release their scent as you look closely at the purple flowers blooming. You can follow the short stone path that leads to a spectacular 30' tall climbing hydrangea.  Before you leave don't forget the sedum bed and the yellow speckled acuba. As you do so think about the motto of the garden owners, “Bloom where you are planted.”
