EAST BELFAST — Rich layers of color and texture mark the gardens of an East Belfast property that will be on display Friday June 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of the Belfast Garden Club’s annual Open Garden Days.
Homeowner Anne Hormel established a layered landscape with year-round color on a property once marked by underbrush and burdock. Pocket gardens now accent the beauty of several native trees (including a gigantic oak) and planted specimens like mugo pine and ninebark. Views across Belfast Bay enhance the colorful display of peonies, iris, columbine, ornamental thistles, hostas and day lilies.
Visitors can enjoy this featured garden Friday June 29, rain or shine. A $5 donation per visitor helps the Belfast Garden Club provide Waldo County students with scholarships for agricultural or horticultural education. For more information, visit belfastgardenclub.org.
From Belfast, take Route 1 north over the Passagassawakeag Bridge and turn right onto Mitchell St. Turn left at the next intersection onto Eldorado Street and proceed to number 13, parking on the side of street away from the water.
