Lilac Tour at Skylands Botanical Gardens

  • May 11, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello Everyone,

Join us for a beautiful stroll through the NJ Botanical Gardens (weather permitting)
Right now is the perfect time to enjoy the sweet fragrance of one of my favorite flowers, "The Lilac".
We'll start at the Lilac Garden where there will be a guide to answer any questions you have about Lilacs. Next, we can meander through the gardens leading to the Manor.
Then if you'd like, we can stop at the visitors center (Carrige House) and continue our walk through the Annual and Perennial Gardens etc. All is at your leisure...
For more information about Skylands NJ Botanical Gardens: http://www.njbg.org/

I've been following the weather and hoping it does not follow us :-)
In the event of heavy rain &/or thunder, the event will be canceled.
If it's "light rain", the event is still on.
*Please check the weather for this area before you leave.* Thank you.

Things to bring/wear: water, sun block, bug spray, umbrella/rain jacket and most importantly, a camera!

Meeting: Follow Morris Rd. to the end, passed the two eagle statues. Continue straight and follow the road around to the right. Your going to pass the Manor on your right and follow the signs for Parking Lot B. We'll meet in parking Lot B in-front of the Kiosk. I'll be wearing an olive green cap. My number in-case you need to reach me #[masked]-9562. I will be there till 1:40pm, then heading to the Lilac Garden.

Look forward to meeting everyone,
Melanie

    Melanie, thank you for a wonderful idea for a meetup. The Gardens were great and the weather actually put a nice touch on the tour. The company was great and the conversations were even better.

    I had a wonderful time. We lucked out with the weather even though the light rain came in towards the end. There was something peaceful and soothing about it. Thanks for sticking around and really enjoyed our conversations ;-) Look forward to seeing you again!

    So far, looks like some rain in the am but is suppposed to clear in the afternoon and won't start again till 3pm earliest. I'm hoping for the best, if not, I completely understand if you don't want to chance it.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone if not at this event, at a future one. :-)
