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.

  • North Garden inventory (Jul 17, '15)
    I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
  • Rose Garden inventory (Jul 10, '15)
    Thank goodness for rainy days. Without them, we stay outside and never get around to tidying the potting shed, defrosting the fridge, or keeping up with the paperwork. (Not to mention how happy the gardens are after a good downpour.) I’m grateful too that Betsy worked on the blog last week because aside from the pleasure of seeing Blithewold’s gardens […]
