A Pictorial Year in Review at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

by Beth Monroe, Public Relations Director, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

The year 2010 was a year of extremes for us here at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden:  the wettest spring, the hottest summer, and the coldest December.  We also had the extreme pleasure of exhibiting Glorious Glass in the Garden, which ends January 10, 2011, after a nine-month run. The glass sculptures by Hans Godo Frabel are just as captivating as ever and seem to have enjoyed four seasons in the Garden!
