Parkland Garden Club sponsored its 23rd annual garden tour on July 16.
Several homes in North Whitehall Township were on this year’s “Love of Gardening” tour including those of Janice Boehm, and Steve Adams, both of Schnecksville, and Jan Pavelko of Orefield.
Each home had a unique style of garden for visitors to enjoy.
Boehm has more than 100 day lilies and perennials, as well as pollinators in her garden.
Adams has over 250 dahlias that complement his 200-year-old Pennsylvania German farmhouse.
Pavelko creates “islands” throughout her garden for relaxation and reflection.
