Written By:

OCEAN PINES–The Ocean Pines Garden Club will present its annual garden tour this year on June 12. To ensure another great event, the garden club is asking Ocean Pines homeowners to consider placing their garden on the tour. Large or small, cultivated or “natural,” formal or informal–all gardens are given consideration. Having a variety of gardens to show is what makes the tour fun and surprising. In addition, having your garden on the tour is an experience and gives others a chance to gain ideas for what they might do in their own yards.   Homeowners will be given the opportunity to have an artist painting “plein air” in their garden during the tour and will also be invited, as guests of the garden club, to the luncheon immediately following the tour.   For more information, contact Marian Bickerstaff at 410-208-2508.
