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.

  • 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. (*No garden is ever done.) This week we got the last of the plants out of the greenhouse, tucked in a few final packs of seedlings here and […]
  • The longest days (Jun 19, '15)
    June is full to bursting. Every plant that isn’t already blooming to beat the band is growing gangbusters (weeds included), and to say there’s a lot to do would be the understatement of the season.The long days leading up to the longest have been so busy that I have been feeling ready for a weekend as early as Tuesday. –Monday afternoon, even.
