Designed for Nature Garden Tour
Saturday, 19 June 2021

Minnie Aumonier may have said it best:

"When the world wearies and society ceases to satisfy
There is always the garden."

With covid 19 dangers and restrictions, starting in March 2020 I made do by
driving around town to look at peoples' gardens and see what was in flower
from the car window. I gained an appreciation for forsythia. And dandelions.

Now there are vaccines. Places are reopening. Friends may get together. And visit gardens.

The Woman's National Farm & Garden Association, Bucks County Branch
in partnership with Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve can once again present

a garden tour of local residential gardens that feature native plants.

Six gardens, centered more or less around Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
