Being of Slavic descent, Easter was always one of the biggest holidays of the year when I was young. Days before, my siblings and I would head to JC Penny with my Mom and Grandparents to purchase new pastel-colored Easter outfits. Then on Easter Day, we would be up at the crack of dawn for sunrise services, followed by an Easter egg hunt, candy and roasted lamb with mint sauce – memories I still relish today.

The gardens at Deepwood and Gaiety Hollow look wonderful as we head into the Easter weekend. Although there may be fewer visitors than in the past due to COVID – 19, the many Lord & Schryver gardeners and supporters can rest assured that we have created a stunning flower display for this annual holiday event.

We hope you are staying safe and healthy. Even if we can’t be with loved ones this Easter, we are hopeful that reunions and better times will be soon be here.

From all of us at the Lord & Schryver Conservancy,

Have a Happy Easter!
