The very popular Back Alley Garden Tour & Tea has been re-vitalized in Shepherdstown this year after languishing for a few years without a volunteer coordinator. It is called the Back Alley Garden Tour after one of the unique features of the town – in the historic district, there are almost no front yards and all the garden space is in the back. Hence, more viewable and accessible from the back alleys that wind throughout the town. The gardens are truly beautiful with a wide variety of styles – some functional, like kitchen herb and vegetable gardens and some for show, like the green-and-white garden that is on the tour this year.
Pictured is our back porch with a view of our own perennial garden and shady yard. We are not on the tour but as a guest you are welcome to enjoy the shady view from our second floor at any time of the year!
