We will start by visiting Shahla Butler's garden "Ferdows" in Huntingtown. Ferdows means paradise in Farsi. It consists of a Persian style ornamental garden (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persian_gardens for a description of the style), a rose garden, a walled garden used for growing vegetables and cutting flowers, a Japanese corner and a rock garden. All of which is surrounded by woods.
After touring the garden, we will have a boxed lunch in the garden.
Then we will visit Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Dowell. The Sculpture Garden is comprised of 30 acres of forests, fields, and meadows situated along St. John's Creek. A paved walking path weaves throughout the forest and provides a serene setting for the large collection of outdoor sculpture.
We can then visit the Wentworth Garden Center in Prince Frederick before returning home.
Cost for the trip will be $20. This includes the boxed lunch and admission to Annmarie.
This is a carpool trip. This trip is for Annapolis Horticulture Society members only. Plan on a full day's trip. We will begin our tour of Shahla's garden at 10:45 so carpools will need to leave Annapolis around 9:00 a.m. If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org being sure to note Southern Maryland trip in the subject line. Please indicate whether you can drive. I will then send you a form with your box lunch choices and the full schedule. Enrollments must be received by May 10.
