Caryn will present an overview of some of the 44 properties showcased in Connecticut Gardens sharing their fascinating histories, designs, and human stories accompanied by images from her book. Her talk will include an overview of Connecticut’s 15 historic gardens – why they were established, how they were used, and how they evolved from utilitarian to aesthetic; an introduction to CT’s public gardens – their establishment and benefit, along with notable designers of the day; and an introduction to some of CT’s finest private gardens – their owners and the stories behind their inception and design. Connecticut Gardens is also, in part, a travel guide that will introduce attendees to new gardens to explore.
