On June 21, we celebrated the summer solstice and pollinator week with a private tour of the Delaware Botanic Gardens led by Carol McCloud, Vice President of the Board of Directors/Tour Director/Volunteer Director, and Stephen Pryce Lea, Director of Horticulture.
It was a beautiful day to walk the grounds to witness the Piet Oudolf meadow in full bloom. Sussex County is lucky to have this unique ecological green space showcasing Delaware’s native flora and fauna. We had a lovely homecooked lunch by Middlesex resident, Holly Fluty Dempsey.
Thank you to everyone who joined us, and a special thank you to the Mt. Cuba Center educators for making the journey to visit Southern Delaware!
