In her book, The Secret Garden", author Frances Hodgson Burnett writes "Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden—in all the places."
As many of us plan for a summer staycation this year, why not create something magical right at home? We're here to help. Glen Ridge resident and landscaper, Kelley Forsyth, shares her ideas on how to transform your garden with beautiful COLOR. Hang a strand of string lights and make this clay pot gnome for some added charm. For the kids, try making this enchanting fairy house or taking a virtual stroll through the Winterthur enchanted woods. And of course, there is nothing better than a good book to help you escape and experience the magic of summertime. Take a look at this week's staff picks from adult fairy tales and beach reads to children's and young adult stories of gnomes, trolls and fairies. We hope you will find something for the whole family!
