Twilight In The Garden At Hollister House
Amy Krzanik reports from Washington, CT. The annual Twilight in the Garden cocktail party at Hollister House, which occurred this year on Saturday evening, July 25, allows guests the opportunity to wander the property during one of its most magical moments. The garden, an interpretation of a classic English garden, was inspired by Sissinghurst in the UK, but incorporates a more informal, euphoric planting style. Begun in 1979 by George Schoellkopf and Ron Johnson, the garden is comprised of different “rooms,” created by using multiple levels, stone walls, hedges and other borders. Guests enjoyed cocktails on the Main Lawn and snacks on the Upper Lawn, where frogs came out to greet the visitors. Hollister House Garden is open on Saturdays through September. Visit the website for information about the upcoming Garden Study Weekend, which includes a symposium, plant sale, cocktail party and more. Above, guests enjoy the Gray Garden on the upper level.
