As promised, Sue took many photos of the Hollister House Garden at the Madness under the Moon event earlier this month.

The evening soiree benefitted The Endowment Fund of Hollister House Garden, which is a destination worth visiting anytime for its scenic landscapes. Photos of the recent event reveal areas of the fabulous garden layout up close.
Nestled in Washington, Connecticut, Hollister House Garden is open to the public each Saturday through Oct. 1. The Garden is a constant inspiration to Sue for its colors and interesting planting combinations. “Hollister has the perfect balance of casual and manicured gardens – it’s just gorgeous!” says Sue. August blooms include vibrant daylilies and Phlox, and dahlias borrow the spotlight in September. As a gardener describes on the Hollister House Garden website,
“I am especially fond of September and am always trying to discover better flowers for this lovely month. Last year I ordered over twenty of the newest late-late-flowering daylily hybrids, out of which I’m hoping for some real stars.”
If you’d like to visit the beautiful garden before it closes for the year, you can find hours and directions online. Enjoy!
