Seasonal Family Sensory Walks- Spring
Seasonal Family Sensory Walks
Feel free to arrive early and enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds!
A garden is a feast for the senses! Blithewold invites the whole family to experience the beauty and life of the garden—not only with their eyes, but also with their ears, fingers, toes, and nose! Join us in celebrating the wonderful world of plants — their fragrances, sounds, colors, textures, tastes, and movement.
During our Sensory Walk through the grounds, horticulturists, Gail Reed and Tricia Bailey, will help us to uncover the sensory delights of horticulture. All five of our senses will be ignited as we touch and smell the various plants, trees, and shrubs that we will encounter on our walk. We will also explore our sense of taste by enjoying some fresh-from-the garden refreshments at the end of our walk.
The tour will begin at the Rose Garden. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

Mornings in the Vegetable Garden
The Stickley Room
(Sep 25, '14)
Newer members may think we have a new room at Blithewold – the small room across from Augustine’s on the second floor. Older members may reminisce and recognize that it is now exactly as it was when Blithewold opened to the public in 1978. Although we believe that the Stickley furniture was once in the […]
Slow flowers at Robin Hollow Farm
(Sep 19, '14)
I often tell people that we’re too busy in the gardens to get out much. That might sound like a complaint but it’s not. For one thing, I hate to miss anything here, and when we do take time out to visit to another garden, it’s a huge treat and I always come back inspired. […]
What to do with asparagus foliage
(Sep 12, '14)
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 […]
