Pat Sayers is opening her Huntington garden to LIHS on July 20 rain or shine. If you remember, she did a presentation at our June meeting this year, showing how she had built her garden rooms from the woods over 10 years ago. Now it will be open so we can visit those rooms and view her daylily collection. She is a breeder, with a number of national awards, so many of her unusual daylily hybrids will also be in bloom at that time. The garden will be open from 11:00 till 3:00, and refreshments will be served. Her address is 19 Greenhill Lane, Huntington.



All meetings are held at Planting Fields Arborteum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay
