One of the best ways to experience a summer evening is by strolling through a beautiful garden where you can enjoy artwork and flowers! On Thursday, August 19 head to the Glebe House located on 49 Hollow Road in Woodbury to participate in a summer Art Walk from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Participants are invited to stroll through the historic Gertrude Jekyll Garden to admire the flowers as well as the art of Angelo Perrone who has been painting in mixed media for the last 60 years. Perrone’s recent works of art, called “Impressions of Nature” blend seamlessly with the beauty of the Jekyll Garden and celebrates his love of natural beauty which is inspiring. Select pieces will be available for purchase.
If your stroll through the garden has gotten you into a gardening mood – you are in luck because the Glebe House is also hosting a Pop-Up-Plant-Pot sale! Gardeners will be available to dig up and pot specific plants from the garden, pot them on the spot so they can be taken home and transplanted into your garden. This is a unique chance to purchase a plant from a historic garden. Previously potted plants will also be for sale including painted ferns, dahlias, pulmonaria, lily of the valley, lobelia, globe thistle, vinca, and spiderwort. Plants that will be dug up on the spot include herbstonne, globe thistle, dogwood, English ivy, and panicle hydrangea.
The first floor of the Glebe House, one of the finest examples of an early American home in New England will be open for visitors to tour.
