Felicity is a resort/spa facility. It includes many gardens including a large Italinate design. The owners, Richard and Alice Angino, built the original 'Oriental' garden with plants purchased from Fred Berman, a horticulturist and collector of rare conifers who passed away in 1978. In 1979-1980 the couple purchased ten percent of the collection from the Rara Flora Nurseries that Bergman ran. They then proceeded to turn a cow pasture into a lush garden. In 1995, they hired landscape architect Harriet Henderson to turn this collection into a Japanese garden. A red Chinese entry gate was removed and the mix of plantings was replaced with a much simpler scheme that was then surrounded by azaleas.
The garden is not open to the public or guests at the resort, but the Angino's sometimes conduct tours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You should call ahead to check the times.
