The Fellows Visit the Kamins Gardens

In a stunning amalgam of old and new, the Kamins Gardens represents the best of both worlds: the preservation of the landmarked Helms Estate and the creation of entirely original gardens & buildings that blend seamlessly.

Angel Members Dorothy and Phil Kamins opened their masterpiece to the VRG Fellows on Father’s Day weekend, a magnificent gift on a spectacular day. From the colorful begonia beds that greeted guests at the entrance, to the rose garden in full bloom, through the formal fountains and parterres to the newest woodland area with its airstream and lodge, it was a treat for the senses. And the inventive canapes by Kais (European Caterers) allowed guests to taste the season, from delightful figs to strawberry shortcake bites.

Photos at wonderful settings – the Chinese Pavilion, the birdcage orchid house, the Malibu Tiled Courtyard – enhanced the memories, as well as Kais’ incredible cookies to go. A June treat to remember!

    Thanks for all the photos!

    A beautiful garden, filled with Follies devoted to Beauty, Architecture & Flowers. What a gem this property is, and the Love imbued shimmers through as bright as the day is in the images. Love that Pagoda!
