Spring has arrived at Froggwell Garden

The shrubs and bulbs at Froggwell Garden have begun the years floral display, and even if spring is a month away on the calendar, it starts to feel like spring in the garden.  Witch Hazel starts right after the new year, and the latest to bloom is still going strong. I noticed the snowdrops and hellebores blooming today for the first time this year.  We have had a relatively mild winter, only a few dips into the 20’s, and with temperatures in the 40’s most days,it’s no surprise that the garden is waking up early. (or maybe it’s not…it just seems that way because I forget one year to the next.) I think of the garden as one of the “sculptures” that are featured in the show, and it is reliably a knockout every time.

I’ve been contacting the artists that join me at the Froggwell Biennale and most of them are returning for this year’s show.  Over the next few weeks I will start posting news and photos of  current work of the exhibiting artists.

Some of my own news (hey, there has to be a perk to being the blog author) is that I still have 12 days left to go on my Kickstarter project.  See it at:

thanks for checking it out!

 

stay tuned.
