Dr. Bill & Mary Frances Frank - Sanford

Eclectic best describes these gardens. For over 30 years, the Franks have gradually added different plants to the collection, which now includes vegetables, herbs, perennials, annuals, shade plants, daffodils, and crocuses in the woods, a gentle incline of day lilies, container gardens, hanging plants, and colorful window boxes. They are also proud of their 'lawn' that has been replaced by native mosses.

Dr. Al Pollard - Sanford

A garden full of rhododendrons, lilies and many other flowers blooming in July along with fruit trees.

Dave & Joyce Southard - N. Berwick
