The Shorecrest Garden, a pleasure to enjoy all season

Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast Pond in June

Past visitors know the gardens here well and can depend on there being something different to see each time they visit. The flower borders are planted with perennials which are planned to flower sequentially. Astilbes are in full bloom now, as the first flowering of the landscape knockout roses and Nepata (Cat mint) is past its prime, and they have been cut back to gather energy for another flowering in a couple of weeks. The white hydrangeas are looking marvelous, the blues that line the front walk should start to bloom soon, and several different varieties of lilies will continue to flower throughout the summer, along with hosta, Rucbeckia or Black Eyed Susan ( of which there are literally thousands in the 25 ft x 200 ft border that lines the road)  Perovskia, Montauk daisies, Sedum and to keep color when the perennials are resting a variety of annuals that continue to flower until frost.

I hope to welcome you for an impromptu tour of this little slice of heaven soon!
