Travels at Twelve: Autumn Color in Japanese Gardens
March 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join Scott Arboretum staff and local gardening enthusiasts as they share travel experiences abroad! In addition to learning about spectacular gardens, plants, and landscapes, you’ll get a taste of the art, cuisine, architecture, and customs of lands near and far. It’s a perfect wintertime escape!
Prepare to be transported. Subtlety is essential in garden design, but that does not mean there is never any color. One must wait for the moment and be there to experience it using all the senses. Sharee Solow, a Scott Associate, will share the peak autumn colors of Kyoto and Tokyo.
Free and open to the public, Travels at Twelve is an informal way to share what has been seen and discovered in various gardens and natural spaces throughout the world. Held from 12 to 1 p.m. in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema at Swarthmore College.
