Hitch Lyman is a national snowdrop specialist. Of course, the snowdrops are long gone, but doesn’t his garden sound wonderful? From the Garden Conservancy website:
Enjoy this extraordinary collection of 200 lilac varieties as well as species of peonies, daphnes, and crabapples. The 1848 Greek Revival-style farmhouse was moved to this site in 1990 and the garden, pond-side Doric temple, rustic fountain, and odd assembly of trees are slowly reaching out into the surrounding meadow. Architectural building by Glenn Wilder, stonework by Kevin Reilly, and metalwork by Durand Van Doren showcase our areaâ€™s talent.
Hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The garden is at 3441 Krums Corners Road in Trumansburg. From Ithaca, go north on Route 96 about 6 miles. Turn right onto Krums Corners Road. Go to sixth driveway on left. Please park on road..
Admission is $5.
DON’T FORGET: Open Days are rain or shine, and no reservations are required.
If you can’t make it tomorrow, see the full schedule for New York. Maybe you have another date open on your calendar.
