House and Garden Tours
I’m so nosey. I can’t help myself. And nothing like a house or garden tour to satisfy us snoops. Go behind the scenes of artists’ and collectors’ homes to benefit The Guilford Art Center on June 7th. Get a glimpse of ten historic Stonington gardens at Gardens By The Sea on June 13th and 14th. Nine properties are featured in the Secret Gardens Tour of Guilford on June 14th; enjoy a boxed lunch, Garden Market and bus transportation to the gardens. A Straw Hat Soiree with Jacques Pepin follows Madison Historical Society’s tour of five remarkable Madison homes on June 22nd. A don’t-miss is GardenFest at the Florence Griswold Museum, 5/30 thru 6/15 with two weeks of special events, including an heirloom plant sale, a walk of the grounds with the Landscape Historian, a flora photographing workshop and more.
