Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens, then below the jump, a quick promo for the pandemic-inspired “For Love and Only for Love: Letters to New York”, “an immersive choral installation by composer Pete Wyer” at New York Botanic Garden.
Drone footage of the Christmas display at the Longwood Gardens conservatory. Then below the jump, Conservatory Manager Karl Gercens talks about his favorite poinsettias.
A 35+ minute tour of the 2020 holiday light display at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
Lovely drone footage of The National Botanic Garden of Wales (Gardd Fotaneg Genedlaethol Cymru) in November (we last checked in with them in June), followed by (below the jump) Dave Forehand of The Dallas Arboretum presenting Behind the Scenes: Autumn at the Arboretum (from September; we had also checked in with them in June). Last we have Heather Titanich, the Hamilton Educational Fellow at the Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens in Devon, Pennsylvania, doing a “fall fruits” walkabout last week (I believe we last checked in with them in April).
Yesterday was the first Thanksgiving in years that we did not go and tour the conservatory at Longwood Gardens. So, here are some garden videos in case anyone else is missing a garden. I’m starting with Longwood, where Associate Director of Display Design Jim Sutton tours the Chrysanthemum Festival, which traditionally opens in October and runs through mid-November. Then (below the jump), from Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, we’ve got Pocket Gardens Surprise: A Bit of England. After that, in case you’re still hungry after yesterday’s feasting, we have Paul Blackmore, the Fuqua Conservatory Manager at Atlanta Botanical Garden, talking about cacao trees. (That last video was posted during their “Chocolate Covered Weekend” back in September, and you can find a few recipes & whatnot at their YouTube channel.
