The Van Buren County Master Garderners were treated to a tour of Ken and Marolyn Reck’s garden. A woodland garden is inspired by nature and in the case of Marolyn’s Garden, it is inspired by the beautiful 40 acre tract set in the dappled shade of a dogwood forest, surrounded by grey lichen cover rocks. Tended by Marolyn & Ken Reck for 41 years, this Clinton woodland garden has evolved to reflect Ken’s interest in unusual animals and Marolyn’s love of woodland wildflowers, Japanese Maples and hostas. You will be treated to the splendor of spring’s arrival with Virginia Bluebells, Dutchman’s Britches, Sweet William, Bleeding Hearts, Crested Iris, Daffodils, and ferns. Fainting goats, llamas, peacocks and pheasants watch while black and white sheep dogs herd you down the meandering paths edged in rock walls, to discover the hidden treasure that is Marolyn’s Garden. Marolyn donates prized flowers and plants to the VBC Master Gardeners’ plant sale. Join us for the Van Buren County Master Gardeners’ Plant Sale, in conjunction with “Bloomin in the Bay,” on April 27, 8-1 p.m., at Ed Leamon Park, Dave Creek Parkway, Fairfield Bay.
