This circa 1920 home is surrounded by almost\r\nan acre of gardens. After living abroad for ten years, the homeowners\r\nreturned and decided to give their garden a more European feel. So\r\nbegan a labor of love that continues today. Throughout the property\r\nyou’ll find a number of different small gardens each with its own\r\nindividual collection of perennials, herbs, succulents, and annuals.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003e Look for a hellebore garden, a hosta garden, a succulent garden\r\n(plants in hypertufa containers), a perennial garden, an array of\r\nunusual conifers, a collection of dwarf Japanese maples, and many\r\nshrubs and trees with some pruned in unique ways. The focal point of\r\nthe backyard is a natural, uncut stone patio enhanced with potted plants\r\nand a small cherub fountain. The patio and pathways were paved by Ron\r\nwith stones collected (some brought home in their suitcases) by the\r\nhomeowners on their travels. Look closely as you stroll along the\r\npaths, both wide and narrow, and discover seven whimsical natural stone\r\nanimal sculptures. \u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eAfter the Donchez garden we will spend time in Historic\r\nBethlehem, enjoying lunch on our own, and then have an informal walking\r\ntour of the charming town. We will end the day at the extraordinary\r\nremains of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, now known as Steel Stacks,\r\nand walk along the Hoover Mason Trestle (HMT). The HMT was once used as\r\na narrow gauge railroad to carry the coke, limestone, and iron ore\r\nneeded to make the iron, from the ore yards to the blast furnaces. \u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eOpened in June 2015, the HMT is now a public walkway; the trestle\r\nstands 46 feet tall and 2,000 feet long. While there are hints of a\r\ngarden reminiscent of the High Line, it is the looming structures\r\nthemselves that will wow you. Travel by coach with Jeff Jabco and Julie\r\nJenney.

The fund was created as an expression of deep affection for the Stotts by the late Eugene M. Lang, Class of 1938, to recognize their special artistic talents and all that they have meant to the Swarthmore community. Beginning in 2010, the Stott Concert Fund is used to underwrite the Gil and Mary Stott Chamber Music Master Class Series, bringing prominent New York, national, and international artist to campus for one-day coaching sessions with multiple student ensembles.\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e09/23/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e")
