Garden No. 1 Tranquil Vistas: View "Fabric Art amongst the Foliage", thanks to the Country Village Quilters. Stroll through fragrant gardens and lawns. Meander park-like paths through the woods to the water's edge, while appreciating the spectacular views and creative quilts playfully displayed in the trees.
Garden No. 2 Creating a Garden Oasis: Enjoy the whimsical artistic flair in this unique garden as vegetables happily intermingle with flowers. Flowing to the water's edge on beautiful Squam Lake, this garden will inspire and delight. Stroll leisurely and
experience this garden oasis created from local materials.
Garden No. 3 Passionate about Repurposing: Thanks to one couple's dedication, a 100 year old cabin from a boys' camp became the heart of the home giving new life to old building materials and new functions to others. This up-to-date family home is unique in both design and décor while retaining the character of the original old camp. Both the gardens and home will be open.
The Bearcamp Valley Garden Club Raffle showcases local artisan, Laura Hubbard and her stunning hooked rug design; an abundant bouquet of flowers sized to be a 2'x3' rug used in either the traditional way or as a unique wall hanging. The rug will be on display at the Summer Garden Tour on June 29.
