26 June ~ Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day

Come to the Shaw Mansion for Connecticut’s Historic Garden Day

Sunday 26 June join us at the Shaw Mansion for  Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day. Your $5 admission to the gardens will provide opportunities for learning and enjoying the garden in the current, or the 19th century. In the morning Susan Munger will host garden tours and there will be a presentation on the surprising connection between the Shaw Mansion gardens and one of the earliest proponents of  “modernist” landscape design, Christopher Tunnard, born in Canada, trained in England, and teaching at Yale after the Second World War.

In the afternoon, “Miss Perkins and friends” will entertain with period music, a “Language of Flowers” tour and perhaps a game of croquet.

There will be plants available for sale, and strawberry shortcake for everyone!

Open 11am to 3:30 pm.
