Garden Walk shows off greenery

Downtown, historic homes featured in Pendleton Garden Club's fundraiser

PENDLETON — Both of Ellen Elliott’s parents were gardeners when she was growing up. Her mom and dad taught her all about growing tomatoes, peppers, green beans and other vegetables and plants when she was a small child.

Now the Pendleton resident is showing off her green thumb at the eighth annual Pendleton Garden Walk. The public can tour five gardens throughout the town, including Elliott’s, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Elliott said even though she and her parents raised mainly food, her garden consists mainly of flowerbeds.

The garden at 118 Adams St. consists of separate sections and more than 100 daylilies throughout the yard, Elliott said.

She said it’s a drastic change from what it looked like when she and her husband, Larry, bought their house in 1985.

“When we moved here, there was nothing but a few shrubs in the front part,” Elliott said. “There was nothing in the back. It definitely evolves.”

It’s the second time her property has been part of the tour, and Elliott is a member of the Pendleton Garden Club, which is organizing the walk.

Marti Euneman, Garden Walk chairman, said the walk raises awareness of people’s passion for gardening, the club and information about landscaping.

“We have small gardens and large gardens,” she said. “We have something to fit every passion.”

Tickets for the walk cost $5. The money goes toward scholarships, the club and to fund planting flowers and bulbs around Falls Park.

Euneman also hopes it generates more interest and members for the Garden Club, which meets at 7 p.m. the third Monday every month.

Pam Schug said she’s not a member of the Pendleton Garden Club, but her mother is and she suggested Schug and her husband show off their land on the tour.

Schug is the seventh generation of the Williams family to live in her home at 1080 W. Huntsville Road, which was originally established in the 1820s.
