The June Garden of the Month, as designated by the Jesse Allen Wise Garden Club, is the home of David and Patricia Ring. The house is located on the corner of Walnut and Henderson Streets. The variety and colors of the flowers, greenery, and shrubbery are everchanging as you encircle their yard. The first focal point is a door situated in the corner of the large fence. Flowers range from vines of Mandevilla, Confederate Star Jasmine, Clematis, and bougainvillea; pots of petunias and greenery of asparagus fern hang all along the back fence. Multiple flower beds are filled with impatience, daylilies, and hydrangeas. Upon entering the far corner of the garden there is a secluded area for cooking and eating behind a row containing not only schefflera plants, but lime, orange, and grapefruit trees along with a fiddle-leaf philodendron reaching over 6 feet tall. Interspersed around the yard are althea bushes in shades of pink, as well as white. Hiding all along the fence and peeking out from around some of the flowers are statuary pieces of dogs and kittens, along various metal yard art pieces in the forms of flamingos to pigs. The entire garden is designed to delight the eyes.
