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!
