We have had a slow start this season, but beginning June 16 we have a great list of invitations to visit private gardens!
We begin on June 16. Gurdarshan and Haring Khalsa have invited us to return to their garden. Their garden was one of our last we visited in the fall. It is a lovely place and for those of us who saw it then should find it particularly interesting to see during spring-into-summer.
We also have confirmed invitations for July 7 and August 25 and several others that are tentative. However, please remember that the success of our informal group depends on members securing invitations.
I hope to see you all at the Khalsa garden on June 16 – 10 a.m. J Jean Hockman
When: Saturday, June 16, 10 a.m.
What: Visit the garden of Gurdarshan and Haring Khalsa
Where: 2976 Pebble Beach Drive
Details: Gurdarshan writes: This garden has been an ongoing "project" for 26 years. It is never finished as all gardeners will understand. We have incorporated rock work in the landscape plan. My style is country rustic with a leaning toward the English garden. I grew up in Seattle and it has been difficult to leave the water loving plants behind. The focus is on flowers as our yard has become more shady over the years.
