Six-plus links to recent essays and articles about and by gardeny places I’ve visited and enjoyed:
- A walk in the snow at Blithewold garden and estate in Bristol, Rhode Island.
- An interview (audio with full transcript) by Margaret Roach with Louis Bauer, Director of Horticulture at Wave Hill public garden & cultural arts center on the Hudson River in the Bronx, New York, about Wave Hill’s gardening style and techniques.
- “Farewell to a Beloved Beech” at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. (Their website is down today but check back!)
- Tree Habit at Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
- Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia, offers info for children (and adults) about winter adaptation for flora and fauna. (Ginter’s Christmas light display was voted #2 in the country this year, after Longwood Garden’s!)
- An article on northern sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium) — a native ornamental grass — at the High Line‘s blog (New York City).
- Cool season botanical interest plants — a blog post at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.
