Dr. Dennis Denenberg’s Gardens of Oz ~ This retired educator and author of the book, “50 American Heroes Every Kid Should Meet,” has a fun and beautiful collection of theme gardens throughout his no-grass, 1-acre property. A favorite is the Wizard of Oz garden with a yellow brick road and Toto doghouse. Dennis’s house is a veritable Wizard of Oz museum, too. We’ll tour both the gardens and house. Part of this trip’s cost will be a donation to the breast cancer awareness charity Diana’s Dreamers, named for Dennis’s sister, Diana Lin Durand, who died from the disease in 2007.

Pheasant Run Farm Bed and Breakfast and gardens of Vivian and Bob Abel in the Lancaster County countryside. Vivian is an active garden clubber and has flowers and gardens both around the B&B and sprinkled throughout the 48-acre property – 26 acres of which is farmed. You’ll also have time to tour The Gentleman’s Lodge, Callie’s Cabin, a well house, & a potting shed.

Arrive at Shady Maple Smorgasbord in East Earl for a Pennsylvania Dutch buffet (included), followed by time to shop in Shady Maple’s huge gift shop.

Conestoga Nursery, located just down the road from Shady Maple in East Earl. This is one of George’s favorite places to buy trees and shrubs. The selection is huge (good varieties, too), and the prices are markedly lower than most places. George can help you with buying decisions, too.

Black Creek Greenhouses, another of George’s favorite plant places. Black Creek specializes in annuals, perennials, and vegetables but also carries seeds, fertilizers, bagged goods, tools, garden gifts, and much more. You might even find whoopie pies at the checkout. Like Conestoga, the prices are excellent.

6:00 PM Approx. return to Weis Markets.
6:30 PM Approx. return to Sam’s Club.
