    Ari Maravel "Gardens of Willowbend" Titcomb's Bookshop Sunday April 29 at 2pm

    Join us on Sunday afternoon, April 29 at 2-3pm to hear head gardener Ari Maravel talk about the beautiful gardens he designed for Willowbend.

    What comes to mind when you close your eyes and think of a garden? Perhaps it's a memory of flowers you helped a grandparent tend when you were a child or the first patch of ground you cultivated as an adult.  Maybe your vision encompasses a large garden that took your breath away, with lush plantings in a symphony of colors.  Willowbend is the canvas for Ari Maravel's inspired plantings in the many impressive flower beds throughout the property.
