Seasonal Family Sensory Walks- Spring

WHEN: Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 1:00PM - 2:00PM

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.

Everything that, as of last week, still seemed tightly budded and winter-stunted is suddenly busting to bloom. The daffodils have started opening and, depending […]
  • Seeing flowers (Apr 10, '15)
    I don’t want you to get too excited by the title of this post. Signs of spring are popping out, bit by bit, but we’re not seeing many flowers yet. We’re still waiting for the daffodils to make an appearance. That said, feel free to do a little dance if you want to (I do) because it won’t […]
  • Awakening spring (Apr 03, '15)
    This week the temperatures softened just enough to keep spring from hitting the snooze button again and made being outside in the gardens totally irresistible. We didn’t leave a lot in the Rose or North Gardens to cut back (we adhere to the tradition of putting those gardens “to bed” in the fall for the sake of […]
