May Garden Walk

The annual Spring Garden Walk was a stroll through the Stanton Park neighborhood of Capitol Hill.

About thirty club members and their guests examined the gardens along Fourth and Fifth Streets noting details of plantings and hardscape. Susan Thompson’s carefully constructed questionnaire was a great inducement for us to pay close attention to interesting flora and artistic features, including a larch tree, a rare choice in the DC area. Along the way, the group spoke with one home owner who had constructed and planted a vertical herb garden from a discarded construction pallet. We ended the walk with refreshments in Sharon Ferguson’s garden lovely backyard garden.

Thanks to Susan and Sharon for an interesting and entertaining evening.
