Attending LongHouse Reserve Landscape Awards Ceremony

On Saturday, September 21st, I was in East Hampton, New York to attend an awards ceremony.  LongHouse Reserve, the not-for-profit art museum, sculpture garden, and art education organization, honored two prominent horticultural leaders at its biennial Landscape Awards Ceremony.  Horticultural activist and devoted New York City civil servant Warrie Price was recognized for her work as the Founder of the Battery Park Conservancy in lower Manhattan.  Fergus Garrett, who has been Head Gardener at Great Dixter, the historic East Sussex manor house since 1992, was the other recipient.  This blog is about the slide show that Garrett offered of the gardens of Great Dixter.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable presentation given before the guests moved on to LongHouse for a pleasant luncheon.  Click here to read my blog about the fabulous LongHouse Reserve that I posted in August of last year.
