Beyond the Garden Gates Tour

2015-05-16 15.46.46We here at the Frederick Inn Bed and Breakfast are proud of our gardens, but we cannot compare to the master gardeners around town.

One popular event every May is the Beyond the Garden Gates tour, hosted by Celebrate Frederick.  This year the dates are May 21 and 22, 2016.  The self-guided tour features 10 public and private gardens throughout the historic downtown area.

You can get a peek at some gorgeous back yards and out of the way places.  From sweet fragrances and lush colors, to unique uses of small spaces, this tour is certain to inspire your green thumb.

Two of our guests, Bill and Phyllis Mann, enjoyed the tour last year.  Bill was even inspired to compose a haiku:

Attendees are also treated to live plein air artists in many of the gardens, in addition to the annual Hospitality Center where guests are invited to refresh themselves during the tour.IMG_1035

The tour is both walk-able and bike-able.  For the less ambitious, the City of Frederick has ample parking.

Tickets are limited.  They may be purchased online for $25, or at the Hospitality Center for $30 (if still available on the date of the tour).  Proceeds from the event are used for various community projects.
