Thanks to the continued summer rain, the garden is as vibrant as
ever! Everywhere you look—the beds at the Reflecting pool
Terrace, Croquet Lawn, Garden of the Gods, and the Teahouse—your eyes are greeted with a riot of colorful blooms and full,
lush greenery. With the start of the Labor Day weekend, we know
that from this bounty, the fiery reds, oranges and yellows of
fall are soon to emerge.
landscape’s changing colors are not the only reason to come to
the garden this fall. We have a wonderful line-up of programming
on the horizon including two great lectures—one by the
ever-popular Marta McDowell on
her new book, Gardening
Can Be Murder, on September 28 at 3:00 p.m., and New
York Times best-selling author Doug
Tallemy, who will deliver an important
environmental message in his talk, Nature’s
Best Hope, on October 8 at 3:00 p.m.
you will join us for another very special event—An
Enchanted Evening—on Friday, September 22,
when we will raise a glass in tribute to our late Founding
Chairman, Peter P. Blanchard III, whose family dream was to
create and operate a garden in Short Hills for the public to
enjoy. Peter, along with his partner in life, Sofia A. Blanchard,
set out to make the dream of Greenwood Gardens a reality 20 years
ago. Our festive anniversary party will feature fine foods and
sparkling spirits, live jazz, a silent auction consisting of 20
unique items you won’t want to leave without, strolling in a
twilit garden, and the laughter of a community of people who care
about nature, beauty, and history.
Come one and all!
