Yard of the Week: Eileen Hennemann and Allan Stanley

This backyard oasis on Country Street in Rural Ramsay is the home of Eileen Hennemann and Allan Stanley.   A welcoming arbour leads to a large fire pit with seating space for many.

A fieldstone pathway meanders through a mature stand of trees including ivory silk lilac and maple to a potted herb garden, a tree and shrub nursery, raised garden beds, a picnic table and a windmill.  The birds are offered a birdbath with driftwood accents to stand and dry themselves, bird feeders and bird houses .

The route is scattered with dogwood, weigela, and white astilbe shrubs.  The rock gardens host irises, lilies, peonies, clematis, hosta and soloman’s seal. The sound of wind chimes enhances your garden stroll.
