A Wreath for all Seasons
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.berkshirebotanicalgarden.org
