Sassy Summer Soire~ Garden Bus Trip

DIG IT! Magazine and the Rollin’ Garden Party Bus are on the road to Litchfield County, CT, on Tuesday, June 20, 2023 to visit two unique private gardens at opposite ends of the gardening spectrum, plus a purveyor of all things horticulture on a
Sassy Summer Soire.

STOP 1: An intimate Old World-style garden with cobbled paths, terraced gardens, raised perennial beds, and reflecting pools. Overlooking the Housatonic River, the property has a distinct French/Italian flavor. The owner, Michael Trapp, is a renowned garden and interior designer and dealer of antiques and architectural fragments.

STOP 2: An idiosyncratic hillside garden that incorporates a granite ledge, ravines, placid greensward and garden areas with level terrain of "Sissinghurst" of a demure color palette and "Margaritaville" a colorful ravine, home-made frog pond, and a native plant meadow. Roxana Robinson, owner and award-winning writer of ten books, will show us her distinguished garden.

STOP 3: Lunch on our own in the town of Litchfield.

STOP 4: White Flower Farm with guided tour and discount shopping for Rollin' Garden Party Bus Trippers. (Lots of room under the bus!)

Date: June 20, 2023. Rain or Shine! Be prepared.
Bus: Rockaway Townsquare Mall. Board at 8:15; leaves at 8:30 sharp! Leave early!
Cost: $80/person includes bus, garden admissions, guided tour, water and goodies
