In the Renaissance Garden - A Visual Diary

July and August, 2020

Dear Members and Guests, 

 

We are so happy to have reopened and to see so many of you visiting the Renaissance Garden. July and August were busy months for us, after completing all sorts of needed maintenance in the lower and upper garden. See all of the amazing photos below.
