Berkshire Botanical Garden’s Fête des Fleurs

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsGardeners are among the most creative people around, which was evident at the Fête des Fleurs fundraiser at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge on Saturday, July 23. The lavishly decorated tent vied for attention with the hats many women wore to compete in a chapeau contest in which prizes were awarded in four categories: Out on a Limb, Birds of a Feather, Chiquita Banana and Hat Garden. Party chair Maria Nation (left with fellow BBG trustee Bob Hyland) was cool as a cucumber even though it was one of the hottest nights of the year.
