The Unsung Season, Gardens in Winter

Saturday, January 27, 2018
10:00am – 12:00pm

Bartlett Arboretum, Stamford

In this talk we look at the many possibilities for interest way past first frost. Karen Bussolini considers form, line, color, texture, plays of light and shadow, movement, sound, birds, surprises you find when you drag yourself out of the comfy fireside chair and go outdoors. Big structures carry the garden when details are buried under snow, evergreens provide color and form, deciduous trees and shrubs create form with lines. Seedheads and pods lend punctuation and texture and many herbaceous plants – our foul weather friends – persist well into winter. Weather permitting, we will take a stroll around the Bartlett Arboretum perennial gardens at noon to see and enjoy some of nature's poetic sights. This course requires a minimum of 15 students. Registration closes 1/29/2018 and the class costs $50 for non-master gardeners.
