A group of Gardeners Exchange members were once again privileged to have Joann Vieira as our tour guide at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens on March 10th. Joann shared her knowledge and stories of the Camelias then she brought us outside to see some color in the winter gardens from multiple varieties of witch hazel and the dogwoods. The Midwinter Fire Dogwood dazzled as it always does.
The day was bittersweet. Among all the beauty of Tower Hill and Joann’s warm, personable presence we learned that after nearly 30 years, Joann is leaving Tower Hill. We wish her much success in her next adventure and hope we have the joy of learning from her in the future.
Here are some photos from our special day. Click the first one to view them as a slideshow.
