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.

  • North Garden inventory (Jul 17, '15)
    I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
  • Rose Garden inventory (Jul 10, '15)
    Thank goodness for rainy days. Without them, we stay outside and never get around to tidying the potting shed, defrosting the fridge, or keeping up with the paperwork. (Not to mention how happy the gardens are after a good downpour.) I’m grateful too that Betsy worked on the blog last week because aside from the pleasure of seeing Blithewold’s gardens […]
