July @ Greenwood Gardens





Finding Zen in the Garden


Dear Friends,

There is much to revitalize your senses at Greenwood Gardens in July! 

Take time to revel in the beauty of our hydrangea collection from the moment you drive into the North Ridge parking lot, continuing throughout the garden, from the Forecourt oval to the Main Lawn and down the Main Axis. Look for mountain, mophead, lacecap, and panicle varieties. 

If relaxation is your beat, take a seat on one of our comfortable garden benches so you can enjoy the soothing sight and sound of water gracefully flowing through the antique dolphins at the D-shaped pool and the iconic Boy with Two Geese sculpture in the center of the Garden of the Gods.  You can also find your way to the majestic ponds on the southeast side of the garden where the bucolic landscape will likely stimulate Zenlike thoughts.



For those craving a more active experience, stop by the Barnyard and say hello to our sociable collection of animals, including the two new female Chocolate turkeys who have joined our existing flock of talkative males - two Narragansetts and one Bourbon Red.  We have also added seven Red Sex Link and five Rhode Island Red hens.  You are sure to come away with a sense of satisfaction from interacting with our fine-feathered friends.



And finally, why not sign up now for a fun-filled evening scavenger hunt on July 13?  Discover hidden trinkets throughout our historic oasis, followed by a glass of wine and prizes for all who complete the exercise. 

Let Greenwood be a source of inspiration and rejuvenation for you and your family and friends this month.  We look forward to welcoming you with open arms.

Happy Summer!
