This is the time of year when the Walled Garden truly takes your breath away. In particular, at the north pool you can take in the sweeping wave of aquatic plants with a foreground riot of red and orange flowers, backed up by a waterfall of orange flowers, sometimes delicately nipped by orange goldfish.
Finally, to celebrate the end of summer, we have instituted a new, moderately priced fund-raiser, the End of Summer Garden Party, to be held on Saturday, September 9. The next day, September 10, will be our second spectacular observance of Mehregan, the ancient Persian festival of thanksgiving for the harvest. These back-to-back events are not to be missed. Do consider joining us!
