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.

Have you ever marveled at the different ways men and women see historic sites? Here at Blithewold, Docents have to be prepared to answer very different questions from visitors. Marjorie Lyon, herself, was well aware of this disparity, and in … Continue reading
