Open Studio Tour/July 18th & 19th (FREE)

It's always a pleasure to find events that combine art and gardens in a picturesque setting. But when inquiring on fees and told the price was FREE, The Annual Rock River Artists Open Studio Tour was a must for Annie's Gardening Corner.

This weekend, in the quaint village of South Newfane, VT, artists will open their homes, gardens and studios to the public. It's a self-guided tour, running 10 AM to 6 PM, allowing flexibility to discover a wonderful corner of the Green Mountain State. All within a comfortable distance, a variation of your favorite style and media can be found. Whether you love pottery, photography, sculpture or want to see the artists' cottage-type gardens, don't miss out on this event. According to Paula, Publicity contact for Rock River, many artists have notable gardens, including Leonard Ragouzeos, Deidre Scherer and Dan Dewalt.
If chores aren't on your honey-do schedule, consider this an option for a relaxing day-trip or weekend getaway. A daylily grower on the 'must visit' list is also located in South Newfane, VT, too -Olallie Daylily Gardens. For daylily lovers, this is the perfect side trip. They also offer U-Pick rows of organic blueberries and a picnic area.
