My apologies-I am a Geek, not a Gardener. So as I said, the grounds are a work in progress. I am not scheduling any outdoor weddings at this time. The back yard is private. During the summer, everything is so lush as to appear overgrown. The groundcover is Ivy, Lemon Balm and Archangel. There are grape vines mixed in and flowers that pop up whenever and wherever they want to. Wild rose bushes, Forsythia, Lilys of various colors, Daffodils and assorted wildflowers that I can't name. I think it looks like a place Fairies would love! But if you are expecting manicured gardens...well, maybe next year. I'd welcome your suggestions!
We do have the largest and most beautiful White Magnolia tree in the villiage-while looking for a photo of the whole tree in bloom, I realized they are stored on my laptop and I'll have to go find them to put up at a later date, sorry. Below is a shot of it taken today in all it's green spendor...it is so lovely I'm sure the folks at Hidden Lake Gardens would be hard pressed to rival it. I'll put up one on bloom that I found on the net that is similar in size. There are also ancient pink and red crab apple trees at the front of the walk and pines along Main street. I have plans down the road to do alot of trimming and adding flowersbeds and Rose of Sharon. I'll put up some pics I took today to give you an idea of how it looks this summer.
