Lyme/Old Lyme Auxiliary’s Garden Tour

June 20, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Lyme/Old Lyme Auxiliary’s Garden Tour 2015

This year, our tour brings together carefully chosen destinations, all within minutes of the other. Begin with “Brave New Gardens”, a home that lures you to linger with beautiful gardens and a meadow bursting with wild
flowers and Lupine. From there, it’s off to “Grey Rock”, a stately property graciously terraced with an exposed granite outcropping, a bountiful vegetable garden and a gravel garden replete with vibrantly colored perennials. Next, it’s “Meadow Brook Farm”, owned by an acclaimed interior decorator. More than gorgeous grounds and gardens, you’re welcome to tour a truly remarkable kitchen.

Then, of course, there’s “Widdershin’s Labyrinth”, seemingly located a million miles from anywhere. Asian inspired, its gardens and heated conservatory astound with the variety of species.  Turn the corner, and you’re at “Turkey Hill”, a post and beam barn overlooking a poetically simple meadow and apple orchard. Here, lunch is available for purchase and fun shopping opportunities at the Child & Family Garden Boutique abound. And finally, “Joshua’s Bliss”, an elegant garden, encircling a stone terrace that overlooks the Eight Mile River. As you walk through the abundant English Garden, you’ll smile as you stumble upon the exquisitely hidden swimming pool.

Your visit won’t be complete without a stop at the Garden Boutique, where you’ll find distinctive gifts and furnishings for your garden and your home, including linens, garden accessories, unique jewelry, fresh flowers, original art, and more. And for your convenience, boxed lunches and refreshing beverages will be available for purchase, thanks to the folks at Saybrook Catering Co.
