Mansion in May 2012

With her love of historic gardens, Beth found inspiration in designing a terrace garden along the woodland glen of this 1917 English Tudor castle for Mansion in May 2012. The robust itoh peonies, river birches and ferns of her “Woodland Reverie” walled garden offered a lush, leafy contrast to their formal architectural setting. With diverse textures, shapes and hues of green, Beth created silent detail in the shade and a welcome opportunity for reflection. A record 27,500 visitors strolled through Glynallyn’s rooms and gardens, raising over $1 million toward a new Inpatient Hospice and Palliative Care Center at Morristown Medical Center. Beth was honored to participate in this worthwhile community effort.

Beth was also selected as a designer for the 2010 Mansion in May show house and gardens fundraiser for the Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center. Populated by soft shrubs, breezy ferns and spring blooms, her tranquil woodland garden appeared alongside a historic stone carriage house at Fawn Hill Farm in Harding, NJ.  This garden space invited 20,000 visitors to pause and reflect on one of life’s great pleasures – gardening – and the life-giving care at Morristown Memorial.  Beth’s involvement in Mansion In May was a welcome opportunity to say “thank you” to Morristown Memorial Hospital where her son received critical care through MMH’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit.
