 Ashburn Garden Tour on May 14th

On Saturday , May 14th the Ashburn Garden Club hosted the First Ashburn Garden Tour. Four homes were showcased providing individualized plantings, treatments and designs. Jay Meadow's home featured a volcanic rock waterfall with Koi Pond. Multicolored huge planters lined the entire deck and manicured shrubs and trees filled the expansive backyard. Donna Davidson's home displayed a sweeping English Cottage garden leading to the pool. Her climbing rose bush was a Zephirine Drouhin rose first introduced as a Bourboun rose in 1868. Glazed terra cotta pots overflowing with Geraniums hugged both sides of the front door.

Gerri Weeks patio home displayed a formal front with a landscaped path leading to a cozy patio covered with yellow, red and orange floral baskets hanging from a pergola. Gloria Williams elaborate sweeping landscaped front yard on Nightshade Place led to a floral trail and evergreens leading to a triple stone retaining wall built into the slope and multiple knockout roses and azalea's cascaded down a slate walkway aside the path to a creek.

After the three hour Garden Tour, visitors were invited to a reception at the Windmill Pavilion. Vicky Duarte was instrumental, with signs and decorations while Mary McMahon gave all bright decorative cups with a flower seed packet inside each cup.Gift certificates valued at $100. from Meadows Farms Nursery, a gift from Jay Meadows, were awarded to all who showed their homes on the Garden Tour and answered many questions about items in their gardens.

Although cool and occasionally misting, the day proved very comfortable for a Garden Tour. Next year the Ashburn Garden Club plans to repeat the event and encourages those with any gardening interest to join in the fun. The Ashburn Garden Club meets the fourth Monday of each month from 7-8 P.M. at the Windmill Community Center at 21400 Windmill Drive.
