The Garden Education Center of Greenwich is pleased to present â€œGrandiflora: Green with Envyâ€ the 2010 Garden Tour, to be held Thursday, June 10, from 10 – 4. The Tour will feature six spectacular gardens and a patron lunch in a private home. Included this year are beautiful settings which feature ornamental rock gardens, waterfalls, picturesque gazebos, columned pergolas, terraced gardens, and sweeping lawns. There are waterfront views of Greenwich Point and Long Island Sound, deep perennial borders, lavish uses of ornamental grasses, koi ponds, and stately specimen trees. It is a unique opportunity to see and experience some of the finest landscapes in our town. Bunny Williams’ Old Mill Farm is pictured below – we don’t know if it’s on the tour this year, but it’s a magnificent example of a Greenwich garden. Every year people come from far and wideâ€¦so save the date and be ready to be truly inspired. VERANDA Magazine is the Major Media Sponsor.
