The Hampton Roads Garden Club, The Huntington Garden Club

“Sweet May hath come to love us; flowers, trees, their blossoms don” wrote 19th century poet Henirich Heine. Visitors will enjoy the flowers and trees blossoming in the mid-century neighborhoods along Newport News’ stretch of the James River on May Day.  Four private homes from distinct neighborhoods, as well as the courtyard garden at The Mariners Museum, are featured.  Two of the homes are sited high on the banks of the James. A koi pond’s tranquil setting and a formal backyard garden are exterior highlights.

Advance Ticket Price: $30 pp
