Visit the Gardens at Clock Barn – Home of Maureen & Mike Ruettgers in Carlisle, for a Garden Celebration to benefit the Garden Conservancy, with self-guided tours, an exhibit on “The Language of Flowers,” and a Tussie-Mussie making workshop, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Maureen has developed an exquisite collection of “porte bouquet” holders and related ephemera, and has curated an exhibit on the language of flowers as the centerpiece of this extraordinary day. Her collection will be augmented with period clothing and thirty specially-commissioned shadow boxes displaying the most important flowers in this romantic art, each handmade of paper. At 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Maureen and fellow members of the Herb Society of America will help participants make their own tussie-mussies, small, hand-held bouquets that convey heart-felt messages in the language of flowers. Victorian tea and cookies, a potpourri table, fun flower facts, beekeeping demonstrations, and pollinator discussions, as well as scavenger hunts (for both kids and adults) will be available throughout the day. No reservations required; rain or shine. Admission is $10 per person, exhibit and workshop included; children 12 and under free.
