Many of us were charmed by Jenny Sandison’s photo presentation to our club in May, named “Grow Older Gracefully in the Garden.” On Saturday, August 22nd, she opened her garden for viewing, with proceeds going to Nepal earthquake relief ($700 raised!). She advertised, “Lots of annuals in flower, late-blooming perennials and cool woodland retreat.” Your blogger, Jocelyn, together with Nancy M., made the trip out to Mahone Bay and, of course, we were not disappointed. We ambled upward in her garden after enjoying the spectacular view from her front yard. I immediately felt captivated by the lush growth as Jenny guided us personally throughout the premises. “Gardeners should always bring pruners when they walk through their gardens,” she said, as she dutifully clipped and shaped her way along. Follow us on the tour in the pictures below and enjoy the variety of plants and their presentations. Notice the fairy garden, a creative idea that can add delight to any garden.
