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.

  • Christmas at Blithewold “You Are Invited” (Oct 13, '14)
    Although Blithewold is closing to the public this week, it is anything but quiet around the Mansion. We are now preparing to get the Mansion dressed up for Christmas!

  • Moving into fall (Oct 10, '14)
    It was chilly this morning. No frost yet (perish the thought — our average first frost date falls in early November) but night temperatures in the forties are definitely giving us a taste of what’s to come along with a chance to acclimatize, and a good reason to pull sweaters out of summer storage. And after […]
