APRIL PHOTO CHALLENGE

The New Haven Camera Club’s Photo Challenge for the month of April is a trip to  Colorblends House and Spring Garden, a half-acre garden bursting with more than 50,000 spring bulb flowers of various types, including crocuses, daffodils, tulipsand other spring blooming bulbs.

Blooming in sequence, there will always be some flowers on display for the six- week period the garden is open (April 2 – May 16).  On the property is a 1903 Colonial Revival mansion which is being restored but is closed for the 2021 season due to covid.  There is no cost and the property is open from dawn to dusk. 

Located at 893 Clinton Avenue in Bridgeport’s  Stratfield Historic District., access is easy from I-95, the Merritt Parkway and US Route 1. Street parking is plentiful.
