Six private homes and a familiar location adjacent to the Belmont Public Library were highlighted on the 85th Anniversary Garden Tour hosted by the Belmont Garden Club on Saturday, June 13.
Vehicles attempted to find parking along narrow streets on Belmont Hill as residents and garden enthusiasts descended to see what are private refuges.
Dedicated to the late Anne Allen, the club focused on homeowners “who have created beautiful garden spaces for themselves and their families to enjoy and who have generously opened these spaces for our edification and enjoyment.
Money raised by the tour will be used for community plantings, maintenance of the Woodland Garden which is located on the library’s grounds, garden therapy at Belmont Manor, college scholarships and educational offerings to the public on horticulture and floral design.
