Lucinda Brockway, noted garden designer, landscape historian, and preservation specialist, began her career with an internship at Fairsted as it moved from a design office to part of the National Park Service.

Holiday Wreaths 2017 – Glamorous Glitz

Our third accent choice for this year’s fully decorated wreath orders is the newly minted “Glamorous Glitz.” For years we have been known for our use of glorious natural materials, specifically pine cones, grasses, seed pods, and unusual dried flowers and twigs. These are still very popular, but an explosion of sparkly accents have caught our eye in recent seasons, and we began using them on wreaths destined for our own homes. We were afraid to send out such outrageous designs to unsuspecting customers. However, we began publicizing them on our Wreath of the Day website feature, which runs from shortly after Wreath Week through New Year’s Day, and the feedback was quick and clear – some of you out there (and you know who you are) want glitter and shine.  So this year, for the first time, you may specify Glamorous Glitz as a design option. Order soon at http://www.gardenclubbackbay.org/shop/

In Memoriam – Elizabeth Farnsworth

On October 27, Dr. Elizabeth Farnsworth, the New England Wild Flower Society’s senior research ecologist, died unexpectedly at her home in Amherst, Massachusetts. She was 54. For those who knew and worked with her, who played music, paddled, or hiked with her, who cleaned seeds beside her while swapping stories at the long tables at Garden in the Woods and Nasami Farm, who took her online courses or heard her lectures, “unexpectedly” is a vast understatement. The words “Elizabeth” and “died” do not belong on the same page. That she was in her prime, radiating warmth and vitality, a vivid picture of apple-cheeked, wild-maned health, makes this notion profoundly hard to accept, and bitterly unacceptable.
