So I have this wish in which my mom and I meet up once-a-year or so at a spectacular part of the world for garden visits and explorations. With Willa in tow.
And since mom sent me a newspaper clipping earlier this month about Blithewold - Bristol, Rhode Island has officially made this wish list. To see a photo of its rose garden's stone archway fall out of my mom's note card was a much-needed reminder that spring will arrive. Eventually. And explorations lay waiting on the horizon. Yipee-kick.
Kristin Green, Blithewold's Interpretive Horticulturist (could there really be a cooler job?!), blogs about Blithewold and gardening here. She was kind enough to let me reprint these photos from the Blithewold website.
Because I thought you too, dear readers, could use a little garden pick-me-up amidst all of this snow, sleet and slush. Spring awaits, as it does every year.
