Bus Trip: Hudson Hallelujah!

June 29, 2022 Hallelujah Hudson Bus Trip

Sit back. Relax. Leave the driving to us as the Rollin' Garden Party Bus visits two oustandng gardens on the Hudson River, complete with guided tours.

First Stop: Blithewood, a Classical Italianate garden decorates Levy Economics Institute at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. But just how did Italianate classicism end up here along the Hudson River and its bucolic surroundings? See how it happened here at Blithewood, now a Garden Conservancy Preservation Project.

Stop Two: Lunch on our own in Red Hook with eateries galore. A list is upcoming for trip-takers.

Stop 3: Guided tour of a sophisticated private garden by the owner, who is heavily involved in the world of public gardens. See unusual design and plants such as rosemary willow, a privacy with native plants, an outdoor shower with orchids and lots more.

Stop 4: Montgomery Place Orchards Farm Market, historically know as the Wayside Stand offesr local produce in season, perennials, wood-fired fresh-baked bread, non-homogenized milk with the cream at the top, drinkable yogurt, farmstead cheese... I could go on and on. See it here.
