Thousands of brilliant yellow daffodils trumpet the arrival of spring at Blithewold. The sight of blooming flowers and budding trees help us forget the chill of winter and look forward to the warmth of summer.

This year we celebrate the creative endeavors of artists past and present who have found inspiration at Blithewold.
Special exhibits inspired by the gardens: RISD CE student art show & watercolor paintings from the Blithewold Collection

Afternoon Teas Wed - Fri 1:30 & 3 p.m. This year we're trying something new, we're taking a limited amount of reservations for Tea. Click here for more information.

As always Blithewold has many events the whole family can enjoy. Don't miss our Fairy Festival Sunday May 1st.
