Cherokee Rose Circle began its new year in June with a special home visit to Jeanne and Gale Hendricks. “A beautiful Mandarin Home Where Butterflies Play.”
BUTTERFLIES: The morning began with viewing of a Monarch butterfly which had emerged from its cocoon which was released as we began our tour. One bit of advice we received from Jeanne our Butterfly Expert, “When you think you have enough Milkweed--Plant More.”
GARDEN DESIGN: Jeanne inspired us with creating an ideal peaceful outdoor retreat. It was not just about choosing attractive flowers and plants, but creating a serene landscape where you can commune with nature. One might best describe her back yard as an outdoor space which has been turned into a relaxing haven.
GREENHOUSE: The Hendricks built an incredible Greenhouse mostly from Craig's List and re-purposed/hand-made items which included a cat door.
GARAGE/MUSEUM: Jeanne’s talented husband, Gale built his garage/museum last year with lots of fun things to view including automotive collectibles, an antique barber chair, race cars and collector cars. One project we saw was an antique truck on blocks with a custom-made engine waiting to be installed.
