A little rain did not dampen the festivities at our 2016 annual Garden Party held on July 30th at the Sharon home of Michael Trapp, the renowned landscape designer and antiques dealer.  Guests strolled through Michael's classic formal gardens – replete with surprising vignettes. Beyond the front door a surprise: a reflecting pond, with a fountain, for shiny goldfish!  Off the living room: a romantic grape arbor supported by 17th century columns. The magnificent terrace decorated with a variety of interesting pots and Michael’s trademark teak furnishings from the Far East. Out back, a relaxing pool, also with a fountain – this one for people! Many thanks to our wonderful host for providing such a beautiful setting!
