Rocky Hills Environmental Lecture — October 25, 2018

I was honored to be invited by The Garden Conservancy to deliver this year’s Rocky Hills Environmental Lecture in memory of the late, great lady, Henriette Suhr, my much admired friend, a woman of great style and creativity, whose wonderful garden at Rocky Hills is being carried on by new owners.  This year, the talk was co-sponsored by the Native Plant Center of Westchester Community College and the Westchester Land Trust.  My special friends, Jim and Twink Wood, came to hear me along with their friend, Jean Nonna.  The talk was held on Thursday evening, October 25th in the  beautiful modern building called the Gateway Center at Westchester Community College and the soaring glass Atrium was named for Virginia and Leonard Marx, the late parents of my dear friend, Jennifer Gruenberg. 


When I returned to Brush Hill, the Brugmansias Charles Grimaldi decided to burst into bloom, at long last, in the Greenhouse, wafting their delicious fragrance everywhere.
