Calling all Blithewold Blog readers – Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum needs you! We rely on our visitors’ enthusiasm and (financial) support to keep the grounds and gardens growing – just think, there wouldn’t be much for me to write about and photograph otherwise. All of you who visit via the internet are every bit as important to us as those who can visit in the flesh and we want to reward your loyal lurking and commenting with a 20% discount on your first year of membership. Here’s a run down of what you get from us (click here for membership levels):
