The classic Cherry Tree Walk at Dumbarton Oaks in DC ... one of Beatrix Farrand's famous landscapes.
Just found out from a column by Robin Lane Fox in last weekend's Financial Times that horticulturist Anne Cleves Symmes -- who recently directed the restoration of Bellefield, an 18th century house next to FDR's former home in Hyde Park, NY -- is making a documentary about Farrand entitled Beatrix Farrand's American Landscapes. It's to be narrated and guided by Lynden Miller, former director of Central Park's Conservatory Garden.
Major support for the film project has come from the Oak Spring Garden Foundation -- and if the final $300,000 can be raised, the film is set to premiere at the NY Botanical Garden in the fall of this year. Spread the word, and make a contribution to the film yourself to the Beatrix Farrand Garden Association.
