An Early June Tour of My Gardens

It’s garden tour season at my Bedford, New York farm.

During this time of year, when many of the late spring and early summer blooms are bursting with color, I agree to open the gardens for a handful of private walking tours. Yesterday was the first of the season for a lovely group of students from the New York Botanical Garden School of Professional Horticulture. Through its two-year program, the NYBG combines academics with hands-on training, externships, field trips, and special lectures, to prepare its students for positions in both the public and private sectors.

Unfortunately, because I had many meetings to attend at our New York City office, I was unable to lead the tour myself, but I woke up extra early and made several batches of cookies for the group to enjoy. Here are some photos.
