C. L. Fornari: Gardens of Inspiration and Insight


Wednesday, March 13, at 1:00–2:30PM

Blithewold and the Bristol Garden Club welcome C. L. Fornari, who will present a lavishly illustrated talk that celebrates how gardens stimulate our creativity, our sense of humor, and even our physical well-being. Learn how a garden nourishes our spirituality and creates connections to other people and the planet. Although this talk is appropriate for any audience, it will especially resonate with intermediate and advanced gardeners.

C. L. Fornari is a self-described out-of-control plant person. She is a garden consultant and the host of GardenLine, a weekly call-in program on WXTK radio. In addition to speaking about gardening, she is the author of several gardening books and many articles, including A Garden Lover’s Martha’s Vineyard, A Garden Lover’s Cape Cod, and Your Garden Shouldn’t Make You Crazy! She is also the resident plant expert at Hyannis Country Garden, a garden center on Cape Cod. To learn more about C. L. Fornari, visit her website at www.gardenlady.com

Refreshments and a book signing will follow the presentation.

    I haven’t spent a lot of time in the vegetable garden this summer — Dan has been right on top of the planting, the weeds, and the harvests — but this week I found myself in there a couple of times. Gail, Betsy, the volunteers, and I had the pleasure of helping with a huge […]
  • 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. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
