Kitty Coleman Gardens Tour


Kitty Coleman1On May 22, nine Probus members enjoying a wonderful guided tour of Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens, magnificent 3,000 Rhodo gardens interspersed amongst the fern laden hills and stream valleys.

Brian Zimmerman, the owner, was our personal guide and we enjoyed his stories of how he single handed transformed the woodlands into the beautiful casual gardens of today over the last 18 years.  He personally wheelbarrows 200 yards of fir shredded bark each spring to cover the trails.

To see the garden yourselves, don’t miss the Art in the Garden show on Labour Day weekend.
