A Wreath for all Seasons

A locust pod wreath

OK, I admit it. I get a seri­ous case of the blahs over the hol­i­days. I can’t be a hyp­ocrite about it, although I do wish every­one else the happy hol­i­day of their choice. The majes­tic wreath above kind of fits my mood. It was fea­tured in The Wall Street Jour­nal Decem­ber 22. Every year the Berk­shire Botan­i­cal Gar­den presents their Hol­i­day Mar­ket Place fundraiser, includ­ing the leg­endary Gallery of Wreaths. Gar­den clubs, heads up — this appears to be an excel­lent way to raise funds. The design­ers com­pete to dis­play and sell their cre­ative wreaths.

I had never heard of the Berk­shire Botan­i­cal Gar­den. Estab­lished in 1934, it is in West­ern Mass­a­chu­setts (i.e. the area known as “The Berk­shires”). I was look­ing at the upcom­ing pro­grams being offered and would love to live near this group. Next sum­mer, my very favorite time of year, I hope to visit. www​.berk​shire​b​otan​i​cal​gar​den​.org
