The Gardens of Blithewold
Length: 1 hour program
Blithewold, located in Bristol, RI, is 33 acres of lawns, gardens, specimen trees, and historic stone structures. Walking the grounds, you may be drawn to the cool shade of the Bosquet (“enclosed woodland”), enjoy the solitude of the Water Garden, absorb the history of the Enclosed Garden, or be dazzled by the abundance of the Display Gardens. Photographs of the transition of the garden through time, and throughout the season, are used to illustrate this remarkable American garden treasure.
