Mike Kirsch Rose Garden Sneak Peek!

Mike Kirsch graciously allowed us to video his beautiful rose garden ahead of the tour. We hope this sneak peek will tide avid gardeners until the tour on June 26 & 27, 2021 10am to 5pm!

Mike says about his garden:

The courtyard garden in this vintage 1920's Spanish 6-plex in old Long Beach is an eclectic mix of just about everything. It has a cottagey feel with lots of roses, perennials, and old-fashioned heirloom annuals. You’ll find lots of butterfly-attracting flowers and places to sit and enjoy the birds, squirrels, and the occasional resident cat or two!

Several rusted arbors clad with a variety of climbing roses and flowering vines lead you through a veritable maze of small garden "rooms". There's lots of color running amok in the various beds and an abundance of garden art ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous--making it a “flea market find" attraction which is ever evolving.

A small fountain attracts visitors and wildlife alike with its subtle music. Come and enjoy celebrating Mike’s12th year as a host gardener. He’s very honored to do so!
