Drambuie among the Daisies

The Bartlett Arboretum is hosting a series of new events this summer they're calling Cocktails in the Gardens. I'm a fan of cocktails nearly anywhere, but everything is lovelier among the flowers.

Each event features a Bartlett garden and a new themed event just for that space, including cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and music. Cocktail in the Gardens events are Thursdays from 6-8pm on:

- June 24. Join them in the Herb Garden for a savory cocktail with fragrant food to match.

- July 22. Cheers to the Vegetable Garden for freshly picked munchies and pick-me-up drinks.

- September 2. Take an exotic vacation in your backyard with snacks and sips in the Tropical Garden.

If garden day is a rainy day, the event bumps to Friday. It will run you $30 for members and $36 for non-members. Rsvp suggested, call 203-322-6971.

Thanks Debbie Downer! I bet you're the life of the garden party!

The only thing I can find on the topic suggests that tests reveal problems in the soil where they had planned to expand. There are 91 acres on the property, and I haven't read anything to suggest that the gardens pose a problem.
