Bowen Island Garden Club invites you to the first of two open gardens this month.
On Sunday, July 14, Doug Elliott and Owen Plowman are hosting an open garden at 680 Minnows Lane from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Non-members are welcome for a small fee or better still, they can buy a membership on-site for a few dollars more. Light refreshments are provided for the thirsty work of talking plants and indulging in island gossip as you wander Doug and Owen network of trails and idle amidst the plant life.
This is a large property with much to offer. Woodland trails, streams and ponds, a fenced formal garden with lawns and flower beds, and many delightful structures to explore along the way. Rest a while in the gazebo, find the outdoor bath tub, the sauna with its ancient horseshoe, and most particularly take a peak inside Doug’s garden shed which has been extended into a thoughtfully designed green house.
A large patio is a great place to rest a while and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and take the weight off your feet.
Many of you will be familiar with this garden but there are new additions and an amble through this large property on a summer’s day is a treat to treasure at any time.
Come join us.
