Speaking to the Bedford Garden Club

Spring doesn’t officially begin for another few weeks, but it’s never too early to start thinking about gardening.

As many of you know, I am a very serious and passionate gardener and am often invited to speak about my gardens at various horticultural organizations. Yesterday, I was delighted to speak to fellow members of the Bedford Garden Club right here in Bedford, New York. I was one of several who participated in a series called “Around the World in Eight Months: Gardens of the World.” My topic was “Three North American Gardens Above the 44th Parallel.” I spoke about the gardens of Les Quatre Vents, one of North America’s most acclaimed private gardens in La Malbaie, Quebec. I also talked about The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden - a garden I visit every summer when I am in Maine. And, I shared photos and stories about my own gardens at Skylands, my beloved summer home in Seal Harbor.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
