Oh how you would envy Linda for her beautiful setting which includes a fenced "cottage" perennial flower bed in front of her home, the most awesome veggie garden you can imagine, a grape arbor, a wonderful potting shed and a rustic red barn. It's like a picture postcard here!
We anticipate moving up the date closer to the beginning of July in 2021!
Z might be last in the alphabet but Joe Z's garden would be first in the eyes of any visitor. His expansive property covers acres of perfectly groomed flower beds, a shaded picnic grove, a pretty pond, and whimsical touches such as the beautiful carriage he restored last winter that holds some of his potted plants. Shrubs he has shaped into topiary forms frame the foundation of his home. This is probably the most perfectly groomed property you will ever see!
Madge & Mikes "cottage" garden has been decades in the making. Perfectly groomed perennial beds abound as well as raised beds for veggies and herbs. Looking for a place in the sun, a nook to read a book, a pond to dream by? You will find it here...
If you look up ROCK GARDEN in the dictionary, you won't see anything near what Geri has created on the front bank of her house. A patio with scenic views, meandering paths, a koi pond, a waterfall and more ground covers than you can imagine abound here...
Nancy and Marc have a sweet and private garden behind their home but the border garden is eye candy that the entire neighborhood can enjoy!
At age 94 Anthony still enjoys the pleasure of his favorite hobby...gardening. This must be what keeps him "young'!
It's hard to describe the family estate of Audrey Jones and her Mom, Carol Richey. These gals live in paradise with outstanding perennial gardens, wonderful landscapes and an expanse of green rolling hills with a view to die for!
We are looking for a few Master Gardeners to help judge next year!
The pathway from driveway to house is a shaded tunnel of trumpet vines at Gary's house and just a small section of his beautiful gardens!
Bored with not being able to finish his Senior year of high school with his friends and activities to keep him busy, Christopher turned to gardening and found that he had quite the green thumb!
Sandy Potter's expansive property was in the family for generations and those generations have served it well. With perennials, trees, shrubs, a pond and a stream sporting a little private bridge, there is something to appeal to every gardener here.
The North Pocono Cultural Society thanks all the gardeners that submitted entry photos. Every entry was wonderful and contributed to making North Pocono a wonderful place to live and garden!
Ann Marie has devoted years into the development of her 9 gardens, hand built rock waterfall and quaint pond setting. There is something wonderful going on in her yard in every season to please the eye of a lucky visitor.
