Garden-loving neighbors near and far are invited to join this year's Ditmas Park Garden View on Sunday, July 15. The strolling tour is from 4-6 pm, rain or shine, and will feature approximately a dozen gardens in private homes along East 16th to East 18th Streets, between Newkirk to Dorchester. The final garden stop will also include drinks and refreshments. A raffle drawing for three hand-held, battery operated sprayers (hot weather essentials) completes the event.

Suggested donation for the tour is $5.00 per person, and goes to support Keep Ditmas Park Green. Regretfully-but understandably-participants must be at least twelve years old.

I lived at 489 East 18th Street during the late 40's and early 50's. Yes -- I was very young, but that is where I roller skated and rode my first bike. I'll dig up photos of the blizzard of 1948 in front of our house. I'd love to be included in your newsletter, and perhaps even your tour next year.
