My lovely friend, Andrea, at the chic Glam Pad blog, invited me to pen my thoughts about planning a garden as a novice (I’ve been there before…). One of those tips was “If you don’t have a place to sit you’ll never venture into the garden,” which of course provides an introduction to the Parterre Bench.

So pour yourself a cup of tea, click on the link below and savor the beautiful, elegant, and timeless takes on good taste via The Glam Pad.

  1. Betti I just want to say that I love that picture of you leaving the breakers after the concert. You look stunning and the night looks magical. I wish I could’ve been there also. So glad I found you and your Instagram post… it’s very entertaining, uplifting and enlightening and shows new ways to really enjoy life thank you!

    1. Thank you so much, Keith, Covid has so skewed my sense of time that that picture and evening seem like a lifetime ago…
      On a happy note, welcome to my Private Newport family! Happy Spring, Bettie
