We like so many others have spent time in or around and enjoyed the floral delights of this lovely (little) garden on the banks of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire — in Alton Bay, next to the public docks and behind the railway station. But until this Sunday I did not know the story of it or know that it was called “Shirley’s Garden” in honor of  local resident Shirley Ferry, 1928 – 1995, who created it many years ago and tended it for years. Yes, there is a bench with the name. But I had not taken much notice of it. We have a lot of benches like that all around this area. But on Sunday when I was going around taking pictures of the flowers (a good way for me to learn my limitations with the camera) a lady, who had been sun-bathing told me I should take a pitcure of the bench. She actually had a towel on it which had covered the name. She took the towel off and told me the story. Neat. So here is a tribute to Shirley Ferry (who could be related to Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music). Enjoy.
