Like walking through the rooms of a stately, well-loved old house, so is a stroll through Mary Startzman’s garden. The peace-filled place is not just any garden. Comprised of myriad individual spaces, it is filled to overflowing with unique and beautiful flowers, plants, trees, and other treasures. But unlike an old house, this garden has something to delight each of one’s senses. Seeing it is amazing, but so too are the lovely fragrances and the pleasant sounds of the birds and water features. Touching the stones, art objects, and interestingly designed resting spots strategically placed throughout the garden also brings a special pleasure. The breathtaking space that Mary has lovingly created, nurtured, and expanded over time began with a simple garden gate in the backyard of the family’s home on Fairway Drive.
