The gardens are having a final flush of bloom, the foliage still looks fresh, and the weather is mellow. A great time to invite friends, neighbors, and visitors to spend time in the garden, view CHG’s collections, and enjoy the artist’s imagination.

Inside the carriage house, guests mingled and listened to David Lawlor on jazz guitar.
