Attendees Explore Six Residential Gardens During Rochester Museum & Science Center Women's Council Garden Tour
ROCHESTER, NY—The Women's Council, a volunteer service organization that supports the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC), presents its fourth annual garden tour. A tour of six spectacular home gardens in the Rochester area takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, June 22, rain or shine.
Attendees experience a variety of beautiful gardens. On Jan and David Coon's historic five-acre farm on Watson Road in Fairport, discover a whimsical wisteria, approach alpaca and find peace in "Memory Garden." Experience the delight of John and Janet Tyler's "bird garden" with rhododendrons, magnolias and a lovely koi pond on Oak Lane in Rochester. The seven unique gardens of Maria Lauriello-Klein and Aaron Klein on Sandringham Road have their own personality with colorful blooms and foliage all year. A "labor of love," Bill and Anne Schuler's garden has grown over the years to include 200 daylily cultivars, dozens of hostas, peonies and stone paths on Bittersweet Road in Fairport. Savor the splendor of Linda Foti and Steve Leonardo's exotic landscape on Thayer Road in Fairport, which evolved from a swamp area to the beautiful setting for celebrations it is today. In "Sunset Hallow," Brent and Mary Ruth Smith enjoy evenings when their pond becomes splashed with brilliant gold as the sun sinks over the horizon. They invite tour attendees to explore their 15 separate gardens that include such diversity as roses, vegetables and moss.
Gardens can be visited in any order. Cookies and water are available at the Coon and Tyler gardens. A silent auction of garden art and garden paintings is available for participation at the Tyler garden as well.
