The Dunn Gardens sends good wishes for 2017 and hopes your new year resolution to see more gardens will be easy to keep.

As a new year starts the Dunn Gardens would also like to express thanks to our donors and supporters for their faith in what we do. All generous acts – volunteer and fiscal - support those of us who work at the Dunn in our cherished belief that a historic garden is to be valued and preserved. 

The Fruit of the Storm

October storm forecast. High winds. Garden. Not words you want to hear together in the same sentence. Would the heritage trees we hold in such high regard falter in the projected weather? Perhaps we’d lose some of the branches of those specimens at the Dunn Gardens we know to be 100 years old.

Music in the Garden

Music and gardens have a long and happy connection—the  art of one inspiring the art of the other. Paintings spring to mind initially since many artists have set their subjects listening to music in gardens. Manet’s famous Music in the Tuileries Gardens (1862), is one.  

It turns out, paintings are merely the tip of the iceberg when thinking of music and gardens together.  There are many iterations of the theme.
