Old Westbury Gardens

A couple of weeks ago, I lead a workshop for Berger Brothers in Long Island, New York with Olympus at the Old Westbury Gardens on the North Shore. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The facility is on the National Register of Historic Places, it is the former home of John S. Phipps, his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps and their four children. Completed in 1906 by the English designer, George A. Crawley, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion is nestled amid 200 acres of formal gardens, landscaped grounds, woodlands, ponds and lakes. We had a wonderful day, the colors were at their peak and the group was great! If you are ever in this area, it is a “must see”.

Burnside Plantation

Bethlehem, PA has a little gem known as the Burnside Plantation. It is a 6.5 acre plantation listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally purchased by James Burnside in 1748. He than sold 200 acres to a group of Moravians in 1751. In 1986 Lehigh County bought the plantation. Most people visit and photograph it in the warmer months. It was a treat to see it covered in snow.
