Sunday, July 8 and Friday, July 13, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm – Cape Cod Hydrangea Society East Falmouth Garden Tour
The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society welcomes you to a Garden for All Seasons. Featured in Fine Gardening magazine last year, this property was chosen for its skill in making a mere half acre feel much larger. Winding garden paths lead the visitor through surprising vistas and vignettes. Espaliered pear and dogwood trees and archways of beeches and hydrangeas are some of the many features to be discovered in this 34 year old garden created by the homeowners / professional horticulturists. More than 30 hydrangea cultivars are integrated into the mixed borders. Yearly changes make this garden well worth a return trip. Open: Sunday, July 8 and Friday, July 13, 10 – 4. The proceeds from this garden tour will benefit the Cape Cod Hydrangea Society. Admission:$5 per garden. Rain or Shine. Pay cash at the door. For more information visit http://www.thecapecodhydrangeasociety.org/
