100 Hours to Victory
“This will not stand this aggression against Kuwait,”

For 100 hours in 1991, the world held its breath as the “mother of all battles” took place in the deserts of Kuwait and Iraq.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
As summer wanes, many of our gardens, too, look like they are drawing to a close.
Bullfrogs at Lasdon
A favorite stop for many visitors to Lasdon is the goldfish pond by the Heather Garden.
During this past Spring and Summer Lasdon staff has been restoring the Chinese Pavilion that was given up for dead. Pete Furu, Chelsea King, Emily Kozlowski, Alina Genovese, Will Riedell, Rob Gach and Louis Antonelli have banded together and replaced the rotted wood, repainted the intricate details, refurbished the tile roof, repaired the cement floors and worked on the landscape – all on a shoestring budget and against the consultants who advised us to tear it down.
On September 25, Tolly Beck will lead a walk down to our restored pavilion. We hope you can join us.
