June 20 - Rollin' Gardn Party Bus Trip!
To two unusual and spectacular private gardens in West Cornwall, Litchield County, CT. Stop 1: Intimate Old World-style garden with cobbled paths, terraced gardens, raised perennial beds, reflecting pools. Overlooking the Housatonic River, the property has a distinct French/Italian flavor. Owner is garden designer, interior designer, specialized antique dealer. Stop 2: An idiosyncratic hillside garden incorporating granite ledge, steep ravines, placid greensward, and wooded slope leading down to a lake. Garden areas include a well-mannered, level terrain of "Sissinghurst," with a demure palette of blues, pinks, silvers, and purples, stone paths, and emerald lawn, and "Margaritaville," a wild and rocky ravine with a riot of giant ferns, orange tithonia, scarlet crocosmia, red salvias, and orange asclepias and also a home-made frog pond, leading to a meadow of native plants. The owner is award-winning novelist and biographer.
Stop3: Lunch on your own in the town of Litchfield.
Stop 4: Guided tour and shopping spree at White Flower Farm with discount for us. Bus leaves from Rockaway Townsquare Mall at 8:30 sharp and returns 7:30-ish.
Rain or shine. $80/person.
