Our May 2018 Beauty Spot winner is Linda and Fred Dylla of Lewes.  Their garden is a hidden gem and a private oasis. Built into a hillside are colorful perennials blooming from spring through fall. They also have many flowering plants that attract butterflies and bees. The back of the property has a tall privacy fence surrounded by plantings, rock walls, and paths that they created themselves, huge beautiful azaleas, many varieties of hosta, and large mature trees. Lights strung along the back fence gives this a wonderful evening ambience. Birds love this garden and they have many birdhouses to choose from.  Linda and Fred also have a wonderful vegetable garden to supply them with veggies all summer.
