The turnout for the Island Garden Tour 2019 was terrific despite —or perhaps because of—the gloominess of the day. 80 intrepid souls plus a few wandering friends traipsed through my garden. They all received the invitation to return anytime this summer to watch the later bloomers unfold in July and August.
These lemon day lilies waited at least 14 summers to bloom for me because they were on a shady side of the house until I relocated them to the sunny areas of my garden. I’m told that this variety was quite popular on Deer Isle in the 1930s. Since my house was built in 1919, I would not be surprised if these plants are nearly as old as the farmhouse is. Come on the garden tour Saturday June 29th to see them in all their glory. There are several patches scattered throughout the landscape.
Saturday June 29th is the Island Garden Tour and Art By Katy Gallery is one of 7 locations being featured. We’ll be serving lemonade and cookies in the gallery as well as a preview of the upcoming “A Stitch in Time” exhibition of vintage samplers from the 1930s to 1970s.
