Can you have a lovely garden which is also a playground for your pooch?
Sheila and Stephen Weisensale, and their beloved dog Morgan (a happy Richmond SPCA alum) are opening their Brook Road garden as a fund-raiser for the Richmond SPCA on Saturday, June 15, from 9:00 AM until noon, rain or shine.
Your donation of $10 per visitor at the gate will help support Richmond SPCA’s mission to find loving homes for still more fur babies.
Morgan loves to chase “other” inhabitants of the backyard garden. At the same time the garden is a showcase for the Weisensales’ extensive collection of plant material including perennials, annuals, herbs, bulbs, grasses, vines, and shrubs, all selected to provide near year-round color from February through November. These flowering plants and their foliage also serve as a home-grown source of bloom materials for Sheila’s pressed flower design business. Meanwhile, their front yard is a landscape consisting primarily of less-common shrubs and trees that thrive in a Zone 7 garden with a sprinkling of favorite perennials.
Yes, you can have a dog, and still have a beautiful garden to enjoy! But on this day, we ask that you please leave your four-legged friends at home.
