An End of Summer Garden Tour

Another enjoyable garden tour at Cantitoe Corners!

Yesterday, on the year’s last official day of summer, I opened my gardens for a private showing to The Garden Club of America. The tour was part of their annual Shirley Meneice Horticulture Conference. The conference was held at New York City's Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and ended with visits to several other botanical institutions and gardens in the area, including mine. It was a great honor - nearly 60-guests from various states across the country attended. Every now and then, I agree to these special guided walks to show visitors what is blooming at the time and to share how we care for all the many plantings at the farm. Unfortunately, I was traveling abroad and could not join the group, but I did call-in and wish them a most enjoyable visit and tour.

Here are some pictures of what they saw - enjoy them. And, happy autumn!
