One of the highlights for many was walking through the house of Westerly, the estate now owned by Tory Burch, to access the back gardens.
Durell Godfrey, photos
Westerly's gardens, which were restored and expanded by Perry Guillot from an original design by Annette Hoyt Flanders, featured the interplay primarily of boxwood, rhododendron, and yew.
The rhododendrons at Westerly, in full bloom, framed the fanciful basket planters made of shell-encrusted concrete that served as garden focal points.
Carole Segal enjoyed the flowering peonies at the estate named Claverack by the van Rensselaers and rechristened Keywaydin by the Mortimers. The original land, since subdivided, is being lovingly restored bit by bit with the determination of Perri Peltz and Eric Ruttenberg.
The open meadows on the property are in keeping with Mr. Ruttenberg's desire to give as much back to the landscape and the fauna that inhabits it as he can. It is a tableau vivant of birds and butterflies--as much habitat as garden.
Even the more groomed areas in Jack de Lashmet's design for the Ruttenberg family are unfussy.
Scarlett Aylsworth and Amber Aylsworth took a break on one of the garden's benches. They will volunteer at the Parrish this summer.
