Tour Made of
Klamath Gardens
Womens Library Club
Attractive Spots
Ten of Klamath Falls' most outstanding gardens were vis
ited on Wednesday, July the fifteenth by fifty members and
friends of the Garden club group of the Womans Library club
when they enjoyed their annual garden tour.
Gathering at the C. W. Hornlbrook home on Pacific Ter
race, at nine o'clock, they proceeded to the T. B. Walters gar
den which they entered
through an archway aflame
with Paul Scarlet Climber
roses to view the terraced,
moss-green rock garden near
the patio and the border of
flowers around the lawn, so
arranged that there are
blooms from early spring to
late fall.
The gold fish pond, and
Virginia Creeper twining over
the house were what took
the eye at the Hugh Camp
bells' where the flowering
shrubs and trees bordering
the lawn above several ter
races added a colorful note.
Mrs. Fred Schallock's fine
collection of tuberous be
gonias and yellow calla lil
ies were set off to perfection
In her garden where large
locust and blue spruce shaded
the lawn bordered by many
flower beds and shrubs.
Members of the group were
quite taken with a banty hen
and her little chicks which
were useful as well a orna
mental in Mrs. R. E. Oakes,
garden. They help keep pesky
earwigs under control, a ma
jor problem in any garden
er's life. Mrs. Oakes. whose
lawn and flowers are quite
new, takes pride in doing
most of the work herself.
Distinctive features of Mrs.
A. O. Roenicke's gardening
endeavors is the greenhouse
where she and Dr. Roenicke
grow . plants for transplant
ing to the garden and window
boxes and also a wide va
riety of cactus. The visitors '
were interested by the use
of hot water heat to keep the -greenhouse
at the proper
Unique in its setting was
the- garden of the E. B. Red
mans', perched high on a nat
ural promotory back of their
house on Front street with
a sweeping view of Upper
Klamath lake. Crevices in
a large outcropping of rock
had been planted with flow
ers, while a lily pond, a shad
ed lawn and an old juniper
rooted in the rocks formed a
picturesque spot to rest.
Mrs. Rosa McCornack's gar
den on Lakeshore drive de
lighted the "tourists" with
the way in which everything
has been kept as natural as
possible, taking advantage of
the old apple orchard and
using huge lilac bushes to
outline lanes. Especially in--triguing
was the old iron ket
tle with vines growing in it,
used as a weight on the gate.
"High" point of the trip
was reached at E. F. Gra
ham's on Bismark street in
Shippington the "heighth"
being in the extremely tall
Pacific strain of delphiniums,
which he raises as a hobby.
The mammoth varieties were
in full bloom and a sight to
behold. Mr. Graham is also
' hybridizing iris and getting
a start in many varieties of
After a visit to the Hay
dens' on Washington street,
where a large outdoor fire
place and a lily pond sur
rounded with wild ferns and
.Indian mortars were centers
of interest, the group gather
ed for luncheon at "Anabag
lish," the Andrew Collier
' place at Pine Grove. There
they spread out their lunches
and relaxed as they enjoyed
the panorama provided by
many pines, the rolling hills
and green fields surrounding
the restful garden.
MERRILL Mrs. Tom Chat
burn Jr., was delightfully
honored Thursday afternoon
at the home of Mrs. Faschall
Hodges when Mrs. Hodges,
Mrs. Carol Ramson, Mary
Dennehy, Pauline Clemens,
Edna Beasley and Vivian

and the gifts were presented

and blue bassinette.
