Garden of Beauty – July 23

The colorful array of flowers adorning the large deck and patio at 120 Fox Willow Drive in Pinedale earned the Sage and Snow Garden of Beauty Award this week for gardeners Michele and Bill Doyle. They have created a spectacular display of container gardens, featuring marigolds, petunias, pansies, alyssum, lobelia, verbena, geraniums, daisies and salvia.  But even more noteworthy is their inclusion of some unusual flowers for our area: cannas, begonias, fuchsias, dahlias, geraniums and mallow. The flowers are big and beautiful, and Michele attributes the growth to Black Gold potting soil, Miracle-Gro fertilizer and plenty of water. The flowers attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to their gardens, much to the enjoyment of the Doyles and their neighbors.
