society tour features eight gardens and pavilion
Home & Garden
Shirley Cole (L), Hilda Ekblad, May Kirkpatrick and Barb Gamble of the Kincardine Horticultural Society, serve refreshments at the pavilion during the garden tour
It was sunny, breezy and cool Sunday afternoon - perfect weather for
a stroll through eight local gardens and the recently-refurbished
pavilion, as part of the Kincardine and District Horticultural
Society's annual Through the Garden Gate tour.
The McClellands have owned the property as a summer vacation spot
since 1968. In fact, their first cottage was a cabin moved from the
Bluewater Trailer Park. It is now their grandchildren's club house.
The main house began as a cottage and then they added on to turn it
into a permanent residence, with a barn out back.
Next door, at the home of Lore and John White, the many perennials
have been given to them by friends so it is called a Friendship
Garden. The hummingbirds enjoy the flowers and the Whites enjoy
watching them. The colours are beautiful from spring, when the
multitude of daffodils bloom, until fall.
