Local gardens on the National Conservancy tour.
POSWALL GARDENS are on the estate of retired Sacramento attorney John Poswall and his wife Peg Tomlinson Poswall.
Located outside Lincoln, Placer County, on 50 acres of ponds, rolling hills and canyons, the gardens will be open to the public for just
one day, SUNDAY JUNE 4th from 9 to 4 as part of the national GARDEN CONSERVANCY OPEN DAYS program of America's best private
The gardens mirror John and Peg's travels starting your tour with a CHINESE GARDEN followed by a walk through the 400 foot ISLAMIC ARCHED PERGOLA
reminiscent of THE ALHAMBRA in Spain to the Mexican garden complete with a pallapa beside acres of cactus, succulents and other drought tolerant
plants, and beyond the paths of bamboo, is the Italian cypress lined statuary garden complete with a large fountain and the THREE GRACES at one end and 400 feet away,
the winged ARCHANGEL MICHAEL, his foot on the head of Satan, at the top of the hill. A terrace presides over all of the hill behind which is THE ITALIAN GARDEN where Peg
entertains often with a complete complement of Sacramento area chefs as guests. Still more. Above is the ROSE GARDEN of 100 roses where Peg and John got married.
If visitors want more, there is the view of the house with its tower overlooking the rose garden. And then on to the PEG GARDENS above a pond full of water lillies.
ANYONE can view this and more on FACEBOOK at POSWALL GARDENS.
