Featured in our 2010 Open Days Tour, this very special garden returns for 2012! The highlight of the gardens behind this house is a large lotus pond nestled behind several gardens filled with a variety of annuals and perennials. There should be more than thirty blooms of the elegant lotus flower open for viewing. Look for the copper and cement sculptures distributed throughout the gardens. Before you leave, take time to visit Lotus Studios on the property to view photographic interpretations of the lotus and other flowers, as well as scenes from travels and Cornell University.
From Route 13, turn south onto Warren Road toward Cornell and away from airport. Cross Hanshaw Road and go to fifth house on right, #346.
From Cornell on Warren Road, pass Moakley House and two golf courses. There is a turn sign on right in front of driveway, just past a horse training stable. It is on eighth tee of Country Club Golf Course. Parking is also available nearby on Roat Street.
