TOUR OF FOLIE A’ DEUX GARDEN
***** We will meet at the gardens located at 8423 Mears Fork Rd, Summerfield, NC 27358 ***** Come and join us for a tour of the lovely private garden named Folie a’ Deux. The garden has been a labor of love and source of joy and entertainment for Craig Wagoner and Cindy Jones. Folie a’ Deux has many influences, a bonding of stone and plants is at the forefront, and an influence of Japanese gardens is present although not strictly adhered to; whimsy is also a part of the garden. There are collections and groupings and many outdoor rooms. Some are a work in progress, something all gardeners understand. The tour is rain or shine so dress appropriately. Comfortable shoes are recommended as you must be able to climb a few stairs and some inclines, and handle some uneven surfaces. The tour will last 2 hours and begin promptly at 10:00 am. We will meet at the gardens located at 8423 Mears Fork Rd, Summerfield, NC 27358. Tour guide is Cindy Jones, Edgefield Plant and Stone Center
