FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Celebrated Landscape Designer Julie Moir Messervy to Speak at Blithewold’s Annual
Garden Design Luncheon
Celebrate the end of another successful gardening season at Blithewold’s annual Garden Design Luncheon on Thursday, November 10, 10 am, at the Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington. With more than two decades of experience, four books and numerous high-profile lectures, Julie Moir Messervy has become a leader of a movement in which landscape design is as much a personal journey as it is about leaving a unique imprint upon the earth. Ms. Messervy’s philosophy is that gardens and parks can be soul-nurturing places—oases deeply rooted in outdoor archetypes, childhood imagination, and aesthetic impulses.
The morning begins with light refreshments and a presentation by Ms. Messervey, followed by a luncheon, a raffle that includes a personal Design Consultation with Ms. Messervy. As a special treat Ms Messervy is generously giving each guest a copy of her book and will be available for book signing! Tickets are available online (www.blithewold.org), Members rate is $75, Non-members, $85

Sight for sore eyes

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 […]

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 […]

Suddenly it seems like it won’t be too long before we see the ground again… Fingers crossed. Is winter on its way out of your garden too?
