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.

Sight for sore eyes
(Mar 27, '15)
Winter’s mess has me craving tidiness (I understand the whole spring cleaning thing now and have gone a little nuts clearing surfaces at home) and its palette of whites, greys, browns, and bronzy greens has made my eyeballs hungry for super-saturated rainbow colors. You too? I had both wishes fulfilled during one dark, rainy day yesterday. Betsy and I […]
The littlest things
(Mar 20, '15)
Pretty soon only the biggest bonanzas of blooms and armfuls of harvests will knock our socks off but right now, on the first official day of spring, it doesn’t take much to get us excited. Any evidence of the growing season, no matter how small, is huge. Especially considering there’s snow in our forecast today (ugh-gain), piles of old stuff jammed in […]
