The past few weeks have been filled with workshops, from NYC’s High Line to Massachusetts Horticulture Society’s beautiful Elm Bank campus in Wellesley, MA, back to two more here in CT, and those followed the international trips recently posted about. My head is spinning! I have more to look forward to; I am really psyched about this coming Tuesday at the premier peony grower Peony’s Envy in Bernardsville, NJ. That workshop is almost filled to capacity.
After that coming up in June is another at the High Line on June 2, this time through the auspices of the NY Botanical Garden, followed by one “down east” at the Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens in Booth Bay, which I visited the first the year it opened and then again a few years ago. The changes there have been dramatic, so I am really excited to lead a workshop there on June 12. Then I’ll be helping people interpret the Monet’s Garden exhibit at NYBG on June 14.
Hot off the presses and here to crow about is a piece I photographed last year at a wonderful writer’s garden in West Stockbridge, MA that appeared in the current issue of Design New England, written by the wonderful Tovah Martin. (The opening spread shown above is a scan right out of the magazine, hence the ‘gutter’ between the pages shows in the center)The cool thing about this garden is first, that it had never been photographed professionally until the gardener asked me to come see it about three years ago. I started visiting and shooting there, then I brought Tovah to see it & she fell head over heels in love with the garden and just as much with Marian, the gardener, and Carol, the owner, who worked together for years to develop their vision of this garden. The result is beautifully displayed in the magazine; Kudos tho Design New England!
