Gardens Around the World

“From Winterthur to Versailles; from the spice gardens of old Ceylon to the topiary of Anna and the King of Siam…a trip around the world”

Need gardening inspiration on these wintry afternoons? Please join us for a slide program as Henry T. Callan navigates our journey through “Gardens Around the World.”

Starting at the gardens of Williamsburg, this international tour will take us to the English gardens at Hampton Court, to those of the Palace of Versailles in France and to the courts of the Alhambra in Spain. Then on to South Africa, to the Taj Mahal in India, to the Botanical Gardens of old Ceylon, the summer gardens of Anna and the King of Siam, and finally to Japan to compare the dry landscape gardens of Buddhism to the lush moss gardens of Kyoto.

Please join us on Saturday January 21 at 1:00 PM for this entertaining and informative program!

Free as this presentation is sponsored by the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.
