Daffodil Days

WHEN: Saturday, April 06, 2013 to Sunday, April 28, 2013

Tens of thousands of brilliant yellow daffodils trumpet the arrival of spring at Blithewold. The sight of blooming flowers and budding trees help us forget this dreary winter and look forward to summer fun.

 

 

 

2013 Exhibits
Blithewold was designed indoors and out to entertain and delight friends and family. Our exhibits and programs this season will focus on celebrations both elegant and casual. Exhibits in the mansion will showcase Bessie Van Wickle’s 1882 wedding dress, gifts, trousseau, as well as photographs and home movies of family fun from the early 1900s. Visit the Summerhouse in the Enclosed Garden for a photo exhibit of weddings, Fourth of July picnics and clambakes at Blithewold from the same era.

  • Constructive criticism (Sep 05, '14)
    Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter.

  • A Dog’s Life at Blithewold (Sep 03, '14)
    This amusing article was written by our dear friend and colleague, Mary Philbrick, eleven years ago.  It is as charming today as it was then! Blithewold’s Great Lawn is a perfect place for dogs to chase balls, romp with each other, or just run with the sheer joy of having such a grand place on […]
