Two sisters,in a Chapel Hill neighborhood, dream of a wonderful garden. They design, plant and care for their garden for more than fifty years. The garden they create becomes a gathering place for neighbors and friends who watch it grow and who come each spring to celebrate its beauty.
A sign announcing "The Garden is Open" welcomes visitors to stroll through the garden and experience the sights and scents and sounds within. The sisters share seeds and cuttings from their garden so that new gardens can grow.
The Garden is Open is based on a true story. It is a book for all seasons that readers of all ages will enjoy. Pamela Pease, the author and illustrator, lives and works in Chapel Hill.
