Summer sun, verdant green, and the pleasure of gathering all marked this year’s Garden Day at Robbins Hunter Museum. Preview night brought people together around a Garden Fair for socializing on the east lawn where vintage garden stonework, historical house replicas as birdhouses, Victorian Tussie Mussies and other unique and exquisite gift items were available. Inside, a sanctioned garden show delighted browsers who viewed plant specimens, photography, and floral designs, all cast with a Greek flair. More than 500 people attended the fair and the flower show. The next day, nearly 250 people toured four pristine local gardens to see natural environments enhanced by plants, stone, wood and flowers.  The weather cooperated, the visitors wore broad smiles under summer garden hats, and the flowers bloomed all around. Garden Day 2017 was a success.
