Thank you to Cathy & Dan Kern for hosting a garden visit for the Library’s Summer Reading program. Their lovely garden is set under and around a small grove of trees with an arbor entrance. Gently curved brick pathways divide their plantings with little surprises placed here and there for added interest. My favorite was a little reader. A variety of hostas, astilbe, creeping Jenny were among a few of their plants. The peonies were in bloom.
Cathy led the Mellen Beautification Committee for a number of years and has now passed that on to her daughter, Jessica. Cathy remains a constant presence of planning, prepping, and care of the beautiful plants, flowers, and decorations and decorations around town.
