Woman’s club garden tour set for June 10


LOCUST HILL FARM will be one of the stops on the Woodford County Woman’s Club’s 2017 garden tour. The ornamental grasses and flowering perennials of this large meadowesque garden (designed by John Michler) bridge nicely with the modern architecture of the owners’ home and views of the surrounding natural fields and forests. The large variety of plant material speaks to their advanced horticultural interests. (Photo submitted)

BROOKDALE FARM lies amidst gently rolling land on a horse farm with laying hens and honeybees to complement the surroundings. The gardens emphasize bright colors (for the pollinators). There are raised beds for herbs and extensive vegetable plantings. Sunflowers, zinnias, vibrant roses, iris and heirloom tomatoes are samples of the many flowers and plants will be seen on the tour.
