24th Annual Garden Tour to benefit the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons
Visit Seven Gardens on June 19th in a self-guided tour located in Springs and Amagansett in the Hamptons, NY. I wish I could go. Visiting other people’s gardens is one of my favourite things because there is so much I need to learn about gardening and especially garden design.
