Last Friday, I was very honored to be invited to help cut the ribbon at the Bartram’s Garden annual plant sale and dedication of the new Welcome Center and Garden Store. Located in Philadelphia, Bartram's is the oldest surviving botanic garden in the United States. It was founded 250 years ago by John Bartram, a Quaker farmer with a strong interest in nature. After cutting the ribbon, I joined Louise Turan, executive director of Bartram's, for a tour of the property. If you know me, you know that I love working with flowers and actually spend a lot of my spare time gardening and creating floral arrangements. Needless to say, this was a huge honor and a pretty fabulous experience for me. Below are some of the photos from my trip.
