There's lots of color running amok in the various beds.
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 to celebrate Mike’s12th year as a host gardener. He’s very honored to do so!
Mike Kirsch graciously allowed us to video his beautiful rose garden ahead of the 2021 tour - we hope you enjoy this sneak peak!
