Milford Garden Walk offers public glimpse of personal paradises

Nancy and Eddie Kay get pleasure from their individual paradise on Pinewood in Milford with gardens that are a glory to behold.

Now they are prepared to open up them up to the general public to also appreciate, as the initially Milford Backyard garden Stroll since 2019 returns June 17-18, just after a pandemic hiatus.

It is tough for Nancy Kay to just unwind on a modern sunny early morning in just one of the many scenic sitting areas overlooking the three-acre property and hundreds of meticulously cared for plants, bouquets, bushes, and trees.

“I’d significantly alternatively perform in the dirt than perform in the residence,” she explained as she carries a yard trowel and examines a spot in her front back garden where she had earlier noticed turkeys digging in the mulch. “I just love looking at (the gardens) and when you see an spot that requires awareness and you fastened it up, it feels great.”

Sunpatiens in an array of shades are considerable in the course of the quite a few gardens, and while the turkeys are currently lacking, wildlife are regular site visitors and also include deer, squirrels and ducks. Today, a frog suns alone on a person of the quite a few substantial ornamental landscape boulders that body the Kays’ yard centerpiece: a pond, complete with goldfish and a stunning waterfall.

Nearby, a plaque with a frog motif notes, “Very tiny is required to make a joyful lifetime.”
