The 21st Annual Lewes Garden Tour will be held this Saturday, June 18, 2011, from 10 am to 5 pm, and the weather forecast is fantastic! The tour, sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, will be held rain or shine, but it is so much nicer when the sun is shining and Saturday should be sunny and in the 80s.
Tickets are available at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, 120 Kings Highway, and other local businesses. For credit card orders or for more information, call 302-645-8073 or www.leweschamber.com.
This year there will be 8 private gardens on the tour throughout town. Most are in walking distance but there is also free trolley service to shuttle you from garden to garden.
Don’t miss the Public Herb Garden next door to the Visitor Center in the fisher-Martin House, 120 Kings Highway, next to the Zwaanendael Museum.
Look for me from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at Garden #6 where I will be one of the many volunteer docents this year. I am hoping to get around to see the other gardens before I go on duty. I’ll be bringing my camera with me so look for lots of pictures and maybe a video next week.
Following the Garden Tour, enjoy the week long 13th Annual Chautauqua Tent Show with free events at Zwaanendael Park, the Lewes Historical Society complex and in Stango Park by the Lewes Public Library. For a complete list of activities, CLICK HERE!
