Thankyou Salem News and Marblehead Reporter

We got some very nice press for
August 10th Garden Conservancy event……….

from the Salem News, Marblehead Reporter and Boston Globe !

It was a perfect Open Garden day………..221 people contributed to the Conservancy, and with the children counted in, about 233 attended.

…….One couldn’t ask for better attention than that….

The energy in the air was positively swirling around all of us and innumerable questions got answered………..

Precious was a two year old sniffing everything with her Mother’s help…and smiling each time, as we humans tend to do when experiencing garden intimacies. Our grownup smiles are often inner smiles, but she expressed herself so openly……..

And there was young girl who was crying because she had lost the ‘grass bracelet’ made in the previously visited garden… I gave her leafy strands of Myrtle Jekyll’s white, whereupon she made herself a crown and was fully consoled.

Wonderful to have so many people sharing a love of plants and beauty all together, talking Garden life, Horticulture and Design all day long…

I had a list of the plants in bloom hanging on the door to my shed / office in plastic, and that was covered with thumbprints, much better attended than the one with absolutely all the plants of 19 Circle Street.
I will soon publish that shorter August 10th In Bloom list as a post on this Website.

And so……….Thankyou Salem News !

and Thankyou very much
