On July 16, Morgan and Mary Simmons hosted a Garden Party with many friends and neighbors to celebrate 83 years of gardening. Mr. and Mrs. Simmons have surrounded their home with perennials and shrubs, expanding many of the planting beds and refining the plantings in other areas. 

A visitor remarked that the “gardens are breathtaking.”  The plant combinations offered beauty, variety, and inspiration for the guests. The color from the flowers, foliage, bark, fences, even artwork created  beautiful, multiple gardens that enhanced the Simmons’ Summer Garden Party.
