On June 7, the Radnor Historical Society and Radnor Conservancy host a tour of four area gardens—one on Dodo Hamilton’s famed estate in Wayne. Unfortunately, the event is open only to members of either organization.
But don’t dismay: You might want to consider a walk in one of our many public gardens this summer. In honor of National Garden Month, Trip Advisor named two local spots among the top 10 best public gardens nationwide: Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square and Chanticleer in Wayne. Other notable picks include the venerable Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Meanwhile, Chanticleer is busy celebrating its 20th anniversary as a public garden.
Interior design enthusiasts are giving a big, warm welcome to West Elm, which opened last month in the King of Prussia Mall. A division of Williams-Sonoma, West Elm is known for its transitional style—a happy marriage of the traditional and the modern—inherent in its furniture and accessories for the home.
