A June Garden Tour at My Farm

June garden tours are well underway at my farm.

Occasionally, I agree to open my gardens for private walking tours. Most of them are conducted in the spring and early summer. Yesterday, we welcomed a group from the Aperture Foundation and some of its dedicated supporters. Aperture is a multi-platform publisher and center for the photo community. Founded in 1952 as a not-for-profit arts institution, Aperture looks to connect photographers and their audiences with each other - in print, in person and online.

I was very happy to have these guests at my farm. And fortunately, I was able to guide the tour myself before leaving for another business trip in the early afternoon. We walked through my gardens and allées, stopped to see the pool and fruit orchard, and visited my horses, chickens and peafowl. Here are some photos - enjoy.

A Dinner Supporting the Hetrick-Martin Institute

I love entertaining outdoors, especially when it’s for a good cause.

Last weekend, at the East Hampton, New York home of my friends and neighbors, Lisa and James Cohen, I co-hosted a lovely party for a group of more than 500-supporters of the Hetrick-Martin Institute, the nation’s oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization. James and Lisa have opened their home for the annual HMI “School’s Out” benefit for several years, but this year, aside from a wonderful outdoor sit-down dinner, they added an art and design auction to the evening gathering. I was so happy to take part in this fun and successful event.

Enjoy these photos.

A Busy Day in East Hampton, New York

As many of you know, my work schedule is very busy - lots of media appearances, special events, and book signings, but it’s always a treat when my travels take me to nearby East Hampton, New York.

Last weekend, Kevin Sharkey and I conducted a book signing at BookHampton, a quaint, popular and longtime book shop located on Main Street, right in the village of East Hampton. It was a joy to sign books for many of my neighbors and friends in the area. I also hosted a cocktail party at the ERES boutique to preview the store’s summer collection. And of course, I spent time at Lily Pond, my East Hampton home. The gardens are looking spectacular this time of year - so full of color and life.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
