On Friday, June 10th the Garden Conservancy Society of Fellows Tour of the Hudson Valley stopped by the home and garden of Axel and Sara Schupf. It was a crystalline day, clear and in the 70’s, a thunderstorm the night before had cleared out all the humidity and the garden just glistened. The visibility was so clear you could see Bear Mountain beyond the Hudson River from the Library Terrace.
Attendees included Lee Auchincloss of New York City, Susan Burke of New York City, Colin Cabot of Loudon, NH, Page Dickey of North Salem, Ben and Cindy Lenhardt of Winnetka, Il., Joseph Marek of Santa Monica, Ken and Polly Mattox of La Grange, Georgia, Mary Ann Tucker of Greenwich Ct, and Ceasar and Dorothy of Knoxville, TN.
Oehme, van Sweden Principal Eric D. Groft led the tour and later signed copies of the latest Oehme, van Sweden book, The Artful Garden: Creative Inspiration for Landscape Design for each member on the tour.
