Howdy to all! I've missed being here on the boards, but I see DC & B have been doing all right this year in the egg department  thumbsup , and the drama department   thumbsdown !

Here is my annual posting of Linwood Gardens' Tree Peony Festival of Flowers. This year the flowers will be peak on the third weekend, just after the Lilac Festival.  Hope to see you there! ezsha

Linwood Gardens is pleased to present the EARLY 2013 edition of the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers. The gardens will be open from 10 am through 4 pm on May 11 and 12, May 18 and 19, and May 25 and 26. Please note the new hours, and the usual three weekends of Saturdays and Sundays, but no longer Memorial Day Monday.

Due to the recent warm weather, the early varieties are opening as we speak, and we will be open for Mother's Day weekend! Also, we will be visited by several musician groups this year:

Dulcimers:  May 11, 2:00 pm
Recorders:  May 19, 1:00 pm
Alpine Horns:  May 25, 2:00 pm
Bagpipes:  May 26, 1:00 pm

Any festival day, rain or shine, provides spectacular views of the Genesee Valley, the summer house, and the rest of the grounds and gardens. The variable weather of spring strongly influences bloom times. The earliest tree peonies, the Japanese varieties, should begin blooming first, and current updates will be available on the website. Historical photographs are on display in the Summer House. If it gets chilly, there will undoubtedly be a cozy fire going in the Oak Room.

When you visit, the suggested donation is $8, which goes toward garden preservation. This donation also allows you to enter the raffle to win a tree peony. A $12 donation includes not only the raffle ticket, but also a guided tour.

There is no shade in the parking areas to allow animals to be left safely in your vehicle. As there are also several resident pets, for your pet's health and safety, please refrain from bringing any animals with you other than documented service animals.

Light lunch fare, cookies and tea cakes may be purchased on site. Additionally, small gift items are also available.


If you would like to visit at another time this summer, additional options are available.

A number of workshops are offered this summer. Current information and registration forms may be found here.

There are five Open Garden Days this summer:  Saturday, June 8, Wednesday, June 26, Thursday, June 27, Saturday, July 20, and Sunday, July 21.  Bring your lunch and enjoy the visual abundance of Linwood Gardens for a day to paint, write, photograph, or simply explore and reflect. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. $20 and pre-registration are required.

Guided tours for groups of at least 15 are another option, perfect for gardening and architecture enthusiasts. Bring your group for an historic tour of the gardens, buildings and landscapes. Since the early 1900s, three different generations have added architectural features and unique plant collections creating a fascinating family history. We will provide light refreshments. $15 per person.

And finally, Linwood Gardens is available in the summer for wedding ceremonies, retreats and seminars. The historic gardens and summer house make a perfect setting for a peaceful day in the country.


As spring is providing a beautiful and peaceful setting here, we hope to see you soon!
