This is a super-busy time of year and there are a number of events for the next few weeks.
This evening is the second in a series of lectures at Evergreen House in Baltimore. The topic is “Discovering Evergreen: One Degree of Separation”, and the speaker is the first curator of the house after it became a museum. If you live in Baltimore, you know that the one degree of separation is completely true! Tickets and information here.
Saturday is the second annual Ladew Garden Fest. I was given two tickets by the great people at Ladew, so if you’re interested in coming as my guest, please e-mail me here and come along. First to respond gets the ticket! Saturday is supposed to be a gorgeous day, and everything is sure to be in bloom. We’ve had an early and spectacular spring here in the Mid-Atlantic.
Even though it’s not in Baltimore, the Kentucky Derby takes place on Saturday. For the first time in years, I have enough mint in my garden to make a couple of decent mint juleps. I am polishing my julep cups and scouting out a single barrel bourbon in preparation.
On May 20th, the exhibition about Billy Baldwin opens at Evergreen. I am so looking forward to this. Anything I can learn about Billy Baldwin is of great interest to me. Here’s what the exhibition description says:
Throughout a career spanning five decades, Baldwin introduced a more relaxed and practical interior design sensibility whose guiding principles could be followed by anyone, and which still are today. Focusing on the designer’s life-long pride in his “Monument City” origins, the exhibition features furniture, textiles, fine art, and photographs that illustrate his professional evolution.
The first Saturday in June is the date we’ve scheduled for the Pigtown Pop-Up @ Housewerks. If you’re in Baltimore and you’ve got interesting things that are either hand-made, remade or vintage, get in touch with me for the details. Hope to see you at any one, or all of these great events.
