April Saturday Escapes


April – that in-between month of spring when unpredictable weather patterns can lure us into the garden or simply keep us an arm’s length away.  Often times we need to pace ourselves and find reprieve from the garden list; if for nothing more, to find some fresh design ideas.

We happen to have two Saturday events coming up very soon. One is this Saturday, April 20th at the Cozy Tea Cart in Brookline, NH. Need a reader refresh about this unique off the beaten path tea shop?  Greg will be speaking there on the influence of English gardens from across the pond.

Since my post from two years ago, the shop has moved to a larger location. When I visited this past December for some holiday teas, this new space seemed a perfect setting for an intimate April event on one of Greg’s specialties.

Perhaps you can squeeze in a Saturday afternoon escape to gain design inspiration while discovering some wonderful teas. The allure of British gardens - it's a perfect April adventure. Plus the setting is one of those hidden jewels in the quiet town of Brookline, NH.  

We hope you make it this Saturday but if this isn’t your cup of tea, there’s another lecture the following Saturday, April 27th at Tower Hill Botanic Garden where Greg will be hosting a workshop on Landscape Design & Construction Q &A. It should be an invaluable session for anyone taking a leap into any size design project. You can visit our FB events page to find out more information. Tower Hill is another hidden jewel in the town of Boylston, MA.

That's a Monday wrap with Mark Twain’s famous words completing the post. "In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours." To his point, if you need a reprieve from the spring, we hope you can make one or both of the Saturday learning adventures. Today’s images prove Twain’s point with last night’s drop in temperature leaving a layer of ice in the bird bath this morning.
