Notes:
Buzzy's Surprise Garden serves as an excellent example of a small urban garden that provides a peaceful environment to relax and recharge. The property, only one third of an acre, was purchased in 1999 by its current owner who took it upon herself to create an urban oasis in the small space that was available. The planting plan incorporates boxwoods, hostas, mosses, pachysandra, and others for their varied green hues and textures; and Lenten roses, camellias, Annabelle hydrangeas, and various flowering bulbs for additions of color. A network of brick patios and pathways provide framework for the greenery; a wall fountain and wind chimes provide a soundscape; and various sculptures, glass globes, and birdhouses offer whimsical elements that reflect the individuality of the garden's creator.
Persons associated with the garden include: Priscila and George Early (former owners, 1930's); Billy Oates (former owner); Gail and Eugene Woods (former owners, 1970's); Ann and Mason Hawkins (former owners, 1970's -1980's); Jenny and William Grehan (former owners, 1980's-1990's); Juanna McCoy (former owner, 1990's); Jean Jones House (garden designer, 2000-present); and Danny Daniels (sculptor).
