|PEAK BLOOM OPEN GARDENS and SALES AREA at BOBBIE BROOKS’ DISTINCTIVE GARDEN DESIGNS ‘PRIVATE HOME GARDEN’!|
For 2 weekends each year I just have to share my passion about these gorgeous flowers we collect. With no oohs and aahs from fellow gardeners, what fun would it be, right?
I am now in early peak bloom – 1000 cultivars plus at about 600 blooming seedlings and intros. A total riot of color!
I welcome you to come visit the gardens on Fri, Sat, Sun from 9-1 July 13, 14, 15 and July 20, 21, 22 or by appt. There will be some huge clump sales for $20, display beds and several perennial gardens to explore. Cape Ann is a beautiful area to visit. On the ocean 30 miles north of Boston with artist’s colonies, beaches, antiques, fabulous fish/lobster dinners and the quaint historic towns of Gloucester, Rockport, and Essex to explore.
More info on the website below. I am a rust free hybridizer's garden.

|If any of you are close enough to visit Bobbie, she has a beautiful Garden! I went on a couple whale watch boat trips while I was visiting in her area, and the seafood! Yum!|

|Bobbie, Do you have a favorite lobsta shack?|

|I don't know if she does, but just down the road a bit, I had the most wonderful clams! And, in town a seafood sampler.|

Cape Ann is most definitely a great place for very local seafood. I've input bb's dates and with any luck I'll be able to visit.

That would be great. It is a riot of color here right now. Each day just keeps getting better!
I eat lobster at home but there is a restaurant on the water (picnic tables even) half mile from here!

Thank you Juli! It has changed a lot since you were here. Tapestry Garden, Lavender/Plum Garden, and Blue Yellow Garden, as well as the formal daylily gardens, plus!
