There’s a huge party at Hollister House Garden coming up this Saturday, August 20. As the event invitation describes, Madness under the Moon will feature drinks, dinner and dancing at the Hollister House Garden, a gem of a travel destination in Washington, Connecticut.
The house itself dates back to the 18th century, although the garden is a more recent addition started in 1979. George Schoellkopf and Ron Johnson developed the garden in traditional English style with an American spin. We love this description of the garden from the Hollister House website:
“[T]he garden since that time has evolved under George’s direction into a unique synthesis of the formal and the natural, the right angles of paths, walls and hedges melting seamlessly into the lush surrounding landscape, which forms a magnificent backdrop to the garden’s exuberant plantings.”
Sue is excited to be attending the Madness under the Moon event in Litchfield County, and will update the S.B. Long Interiors blog with party pictures and more garden photos toward the end of the month. Be sure to check back!
