Afternoon Tea in the Mansion - 1:30 p.m., Fri., April 15
We've filled all the tables set aside for reservations at this particular Tea. Not to worry, there are still some tables available for walk-ins on a first come, first served basis. Or, feel free to make a reservation for another day/time during Daffodil Days.
Tea at Blithewold
Walk the grounds, tour the mansion and then join us in the Dining room for a lovely afternoon treat. Blithewold's informal Tea features our own custom-blended tea served alongside sweet and savory items including one of our favorite bites -- Bristol Bakery's scrumptious scone!
For the first time we're taking a limited amount of reservations for each seating. Your reservation can only be made using this website (please, no calls). Please click on the "sign up for this" link above.
Once the system has reached capacity the "sign up for this" link above will disappear. We are saving some seats to accomodate walk-ins for each seating. Those seats will be given on a first come, first served basis.
The price for Tea includes admission to the Gardens & Mansion.

(Jul 01, '15)
I am really excited to introduce my fellow horticulturist, Betsy Ekholm to the blogosphere. Betsy started working with Gail and me in 2013 as our gardens intern and we couldn’t let her go.

Transition into summer
(Jun 26, '15)
The to-plant list is getting shorter and we are beginning to transition into a summer-full of deadheading/staking/weeding/enjoying. Right on schedule too: we always aim to be *done by July 4th.

The longest days
