"Welcome to Sheltara"
Sheltara is the home of Frank and Helene Ferrari. It is also the home for shelties, wildlife, flowers, and nature in abundance.
Many years ago, in the front of the property, Frank dug a pond with an island connected to the main land via a Japanese bridge. He also built stone walls along parts of the pond as well as the brook flowing into the pond.
Daylily gardens, together with trees, shrubs, and mixed perennials, border the pond and brook. Helene has introduced six daylilies, one of which, Sheltara Lady Cheri, is pictured below. In addition, Helene has hybridized and developed a few thousand daylilies, with some seedlings shown below.
Rhododendrons, azaleas, and spring bulbs, including myriad daffodils, are scattered about on the eleven acres. In summer, there are many potted annual arrangements.
