A Busy Saturday at Hollister House Garden and Clove Brook Farm

My calendar is always filled with events and speaking engagements.

Last weekend, I made a quick visit to the picturesque foothills of Litchfield County, Connecticut to speak at The Garden Study Weekend IX Symposium hosted by Hollister House Garden Inc. and The Garden Conservancy. I was one of several who participated in a series called “Garden Visions”. During my presentation, I talked about the lessons I learned as a child while tending my family’s garden with my father. I shared my thoughts on garden design, planting, and sustainability. And I presented a collection of photos from my own gardens - at Turkey Hill, my previous home in Westport, Connecticut, at Skylands in Maine, at Lily Pond in East Hampton, and of course, at my farm in Bedford. Following the symposium, I toured the beautifully manicured English inspired Hollister House Garden and then drove back to New York for a delicious dinner with friends. It was a busy, but very interesting and funfilled day.

Enjoy these photos.
