Reinventing Beauty in the Garden


Dear Friends,
The warm weather over the last few weeks has ushered in the promise of spring which means it won’t be long before our gates open for the season. Already the garden is beginning to show signs of life, with delicate buds appearing on branches. Spring is always so welcome, and with the additional 4,000 bulbs planted last fall, we are expecting quite a show!



One of the great joys of the garden is that it is forever changing. Each year the garden reinvents itself as it has for almost 100 years. We are grateful to play a role in guiding its evolution through the careful selection and placement of plants.

Our horticulture team carefully considers each area of the garden with an eye toward the interplay between the various blooms and foliage. The changes may be subtle or more dramatic, depending on where you are in the garden and at which part of the season you visit. There is always something new to discover on a repeat visit and we cannot wait to welcome you back.



With April right around the corner, we are closely watching the garden for signs that the star magnolias and cherry blossoms are approaching peak beauty. It will not be long before we invite members for a preview to take in their stunning beauty.  Members should keep an eye on their inbox for alerts.  We hope to see you very soon!
All my best,



Abby O'Neill
Executive Director
