It’s always great to get to know your neighbours, and what better way to do so than by seeing their gardens?
In honour of its 35th anniversary, the Durand Neighbourhood Association is pleased to present a rare opportunity to experience magnificent, private gardens all within walking distance of each other in the historical southwest Durand neighbourhood in Hamilton, Ontario.
SEE private gardens alive with colour and texture.
FEEL the sun’s warmth and the cool breezes.
HEAR the trickling water of fountains and the soft rustle of trees.
SMELL the fragrance of dozens of different species of plants and flowers.
TASTE the summer refreshments available at our official host site, Whitehern Historic House & Garden.
The event will take place Saturday June 16, 2007, from 10 am to 4 pm. Tickets are available at The Wrapping Room on Locke Street.
Not to try and upstage our fine neighbours in Durand, but anyone who lives in Kirkendall knows that our gardeners are no slouches either! What do you think about a garden tour in Kirkendall?
