Birmingham In The Garden
Birmingham Garden Tour
The Missions Team and Landscape Committee of Birmingham First United Methodist Church are partnering to bring a private, residential garden tour back to the Birmingham, Michigan area.
Saturday, July 14, 2012 the “Birmingham In The Garden” tour will begin at 9:00 AM. Five spectacular gardens not generally available for public viewing will be available this one day only until 4:00 PM.
One such garden is arguably the largest daylily collection in the United States. Upwards of 1,300 registered daylilies some as old as the year 1500 are arranged within this 3 acre garden by decade of their registration. This year’s tour date was selected especially to showcase the daylilies in their peak bloom.
A second garden nestled in the Cranbrook area of Bloomfield Hills features a jaw dropping collection of more than 100 roses. With plenty of terracing, hard-scape, and a magnificent pool / entertainment area this garden is truly an at-home resort.
Two in-town Birmingham gardens offer walls, walks, and water features with Michigan indigenous plants at their best.
Our final garden is a lakeside estate that once was honored as the best garden in the City of Bloomfield Hills. If you like Dahlias, you are in for a special visual treat!
The “Birmingham In The Garden” tour is limited. Tickets are limited and may be purchased in advance at the First United Methodist Church office for $10 per person. If still available, tickets may also be purchased the day of the tour for $15 per person. Proceeds from the tour will be used to aid student international mission participation.
For more information go to www.FUMCbirmingham.org, or contact the church office at 248-646-1200. The church is located at 1589 W. Maple Road (between Southfield and Cranbrook) in Birmingham.
