Come to 826 Philadelphia Ave. (Rt. 410), Silver Spring, MD - at the corner of Fenton - across from the Public Storage building. Look for the flamingos and tiki torches.

Please walk, bike, bus, metro, or car-pool. We are a 10-15 minute walk from either the Silver Spring and Takoma Park metro stops. Also, several Metro and Ride-On bus routes pass nearby. If driving, there is limited free parking available nearby on King Street and in public garages/lots along Fenton.

Contact us if you need more specific directions.

The Open Garden is rain or shine. We'll quickly duck in the gazebo or in the house, if it storms.

The event is free. Registration/reservations are not required. Please pass this invite on to your DC-area gardening friends and family.

*This Parade of Ponds in the DC-area takes place the last weekend of July -- all proceeds benefit the local nonprofit Shepherd's Table - I'm really excited about this and hope it become an annual tradition as it has in other areas of the country. I encourage folks to carpool and make an occasion out of it - a really nice way to spend a summer weekend! The tickets for it are available though Premier Ponds web site - - but I also have a stack of them I can sell to anyone who is interested.

- Amy
