Stories at the Sod Bench

WHEN: Friday, May 09, 2014 at 11:00AM - 12:00PM
WHERE: Garden or Breakfast Porch

Blithewold’s gardens are full of creativity, wit, and whimsy, and a perfect (and fun) example is our sod bench! It’s a perfect place to read a story! Parents and kids, wear your garden hats (not much shade at the sod bench) and join us for a storytelling series that will highlight children’s books about gardening! After the story, we will explore the gardens, with a different hands-on garden activity each week. Bring along a blanket (unless you like to sit right on the grass!), your green thumbs, and most importantly, your imagination!

We will meet on the Breakfast Porch during inclement weather. Storybook Time is for children accompanied by an adult. Feel free to stay after and enjoy a picnic lunch!

Books will vary each week (and are subject to change), click here to view some possible titles.

Included in Regular Admission Price. Pay admission at the door.

    Given how many wonderful winter-blooming houseplants there are in the world, I find it sort of astonishing that poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is listed as the best selling houseplant in the US and Canada. But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
  • Goodnight gardens (Dec 05, '14)
    After some festive weeks spent preparing for our Christmas display and this week’s wreath workshops, it was pure pleasure to be out in the gardens again. Despite the chill that crept into fingers and toes. Earlier this fall we got a jump on what’s commonly known as “putting the gardens to bed”. — I must have already […]
