A group of Garden Club members braved a very hot sunny day to visit this lovely garden.

The following is a quote from Loretta about the visit to the garden: “We are beholden to Paradise because the original gardens were intended to mimic a “Paradise on Earth”.

Therefore, in order to represent the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge, 2 gigantic weeping beech trees were planted many years ago and so we sat in their bounteous shade, with their hanging branches moving to and fro in the breeze, even on that hot a day.

We are beholden to Alayne because she took her job as facilitator seriously and spoke to people at Untermeyer a no. of times before the trip date. Consequently, she was able to arrange a talk about its history and the garden designs and structures plus a quick tour with the chief gardener, Timothy, free of charge. His insights made the trip much more interesting.

 Timothy brought us to the path leading up to the Tunnel of Love which has been newly renovated.

Many waterfalls, have been built there and the rippling sound of water can be heard cascading down and around the boulders. Who knows what

improvements will be made there in the next few months? ” by Loretta

Garden Club members gathered at Liza’s lovely home overlooking the Hudson River.  The food was contributed by all and was not only plentiful but delicious too.  Everyone enjoyed this relaxed get together. The wonderful photos are by wonderful Lorna!
