Mimi's Hilltop Apiary started in 2010 in Granville, Massachusetts. Why did you get into beekeeping people asked? I was leaving the corporate world behind to pursue a different avenue with less travel and stress. I didn't know anything about beekeeping at the beginning, but I watched many bee related documentaries and I knew how important it was to keep the honeybee around. Being that my husband and I have a 15 acre old Apple Orchard that we are trying to re-establish, it seemed like a good pairing to our goals for our homestead. We already mastered raising backyard chickens and we were ready for a bigger challenge. I worked hard at beekeeping being very cautious at first and slowly built up my skills. I researched how many benefits that the bee products give to all of us through books and the internet. I belong to the Hampden County Beekeepers club, and they helped open my eyes to what a great hobby I was embarking on. Beekeeping is very hard and very expensive to get going, I soon found out. I started to experiment with making Beeswax and Honey products. I thought if I could sell a few products to the local people it would help me to offset the costs of my beekeeping. I soon became addicted! With every new product came more ideas and challenges. I don't always have success, but when I get people coming back to me and tell me that my products made such a profound difference to their skin ailments, it makes me feel validated and great that I made a difference in such a positive way.
I am a creative artist that initially specialized in landscape painting and then came into landscape design by creating a garden for my mother. Landscape design and painting are two of the most closely linked arts. I arrived at landscape design so as to create beautiful spaces to paint.
My landscape design career has been spent between the Connecticut coastline and the Connecticut River Valley. Currently, I design landscapes for customers throughout all of Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, and the entirety of Southern New England. I am a master gardener and member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.
Over the past decade I have been privileged to work on many large estates, including a Philip Johnson designed estate in Madison, Connecticut. This past year I created a rain garden for Secretary of State, Denise Merrill, as well as a native planting project at Bradley Airport.
I have created a Landscape Designers Challenge in Hartford, bringing new front landscapes to inner city neighborhoods. I am, this year, creating a West End garden tour, to support beautification projects in the West End of Hartford.
I have enjoyed designing solutions for urban settings, including several New York City brownstone garden spaces as well as a unique native plants garden for Incord, a forward-thinking Colchester, Connecticut company. I believe in eco-responsibility by using native plants in my designs to increase our biodiversity, as well as on-site water responsibility.
I make my home in Central Connecticut in the beautiful Historic West End of Hartford and have a growing client list, with many repeat client projects. Some projects have been multi-year efforts in order to work within client budgets and/or the large scope of a property. It is always rewarding to see these larger projects installed, completely transforming homes and properties.
My goal as a landscape designer is to create beautiful outdoor sanctuaries that promote a peaceful retreat from the busy world, while allowing the homeowner to expand their interior space into the outdoors and fulfill their dreams.

Len Giddix has been gardening for over 50 years. You would think that would be sufficient time to make every mistake in the gardening catalog and learn from them. Evidently, it is not, because Len is still learning new gardening secrets every year, and he loves to share his experiences and secrets.
Len has been co-host of WTIC’s Garden Talk , Saturday’s 12 noon ‘til 2pm for 12 years. He is a graduate of Penn State University’s School of Agriculture and holds a full-time position in the sales department of Prides Corner Farms, a wholesale grower of nursery stock in Lebanon, CT.
He still finds plenty of time to garden, to learn new tricks and to become utterly astonished by nature’s power and complexities.
The idea that your house is the center of your garden is not just an aesthetic notion but also a practical tool. In this one-hour lecture illustrated by 80 pairs of slides, Hayward shows how your house can help you design front, side and back gardens as well as gardens between buildings, gardens in an ell or courtyard, or gardens centered around outbuildings. Your house, with its doors, windows, materials, style, dimensions and proportions, offers no end of clues to help you develop good gardens around it. Doors give rise to paths, terraces and sight-lines; windows frame views of those paths and gardens. Initial design ideas from the house then join up with those generated by outbuildings and other built structures – an existing terrace or deck, a gazebo or pergola, a garage, even driveway edges – to help you create a coherent landscape plan that seamlessly links house to garden.
This lecture comes out of Hayward’s fifth book, YOUR HOUSE YOUR GARDEN, published by WW Norton, Spring, 2003. The American Horticultural Society named this one of the top five garden books for 2004
* Fine Painting as Inspiration for Garden Design *, * Taking a Fresh Look at Your Garden*, * A lecture by Gordon Hayward*
This lively one hour lecture comes out of Gordon Hayward’s new book ART AND THE GARDENER. It explores the visual language shared by painters and garden designers. By juxtaposing a painting and a garden image on the screen simultaneously, Hayward explores the many levels of similarity between how the painter and garden designer compose their images. Both use elements of composition to construct their images: visual itinerary, defining depth, creating foreground/background, light and shadow, focal points, pleasing contrast, framing, contrasting textures and forms, balance, the roles of line and color as well as positive and negative space. By juxtaposing works by such painters as VanGogh, Degas, Renoir, Thomas Cole, Childe Hassam and many others with gardens from across America and England, Hayward provides you with new ways to look at your garden, and art.
Hayward first gave this lecture for the Art in Bloom program at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1995 and has been presenting it in art museums, botanic gardens and garden clubs nationwide ever since.
Baroness Maureen Haseley - Jones a.k.a. The English Lady

Maureen lectures throughout Connecticut on a broad range of landscape design and environmentally holistic related topics. She writes provocative columns for newspapers and magazines and hopes to have her book detailing her adventurous life in and out of the garden published next year. Home Living Connecticut Magazine referred to Maureen as “one of Connecticut’s best known landscape designers and radio personalities.”
Beginning in 1648 Maureen’s family were tenants at Powys Castle in Wales and worked on the landscape for William Herbert 1st Marquess of Powys and thereafter for the Herbert family into the early nineteen hundreds. Refining their craft on all areas of the castle landscape including the terrace gardens, Orangery terrace, Water garden and formal gardens. The gardens at Powys are considered by many landscape experts to be the best example of eighteenth century gardens in Britain today. Maureen learned her design skills from her mother and grandmother and honed her construction skills while working in the family business in the U.K. Her formal horticultural training was at the world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in Surrey. The New York Times said of her “one of life’s unexpected experiences was discussing manure with a baroness.”
Maureen has an honors degree from the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama and was on the English Stage for two years. She also qualified to race on a Formula One team in Europe. Maureen came to the United States as a stewardess on TWA Airlines and later became a production consultant on the CBS soap opera “Guiding Light” in New York City. Connecticut Magazine found Maureen “anything but tweedy.”
Baroness Maureen Haseley-Jones is partnered son Ian J. Sveilich, an inheritor of the family’s talents and renowned legacy. Under their auspices over the past twenty years, the Company grew and together this dynamic team has designed inspiring indoor rooms and breathtaking landscapes large and smallthroughout the northeast.
They believe that everyone deserves a wonderful eco-conscious environment in which to live both indoors and out, respecting all budgets, enjoying the process as well as the finished product. As Ian says to clients “it is the feeling you get that truly matters.”

Peter Picone, lifetime Connecticut native, has been working as a wildlife biologist for over 25 years and will share his insights on creating seasonal habitat for songbirds using native plants.
Have you ever wondered where the Northern Cardinal or the Downy Woodpecker rests at night ? What does the American Goldfinch really eat in the wild: does it only eat thistle from a feeder? What do songbirds like the Scarlet Tanager or Wood thrush feed on in the fall when the frost hits and there are no more insects to eat? What variety of foods does the Wild Turkey feed on in your neighborhood? Is the Wild Turkey dependent on food from your feeder? In the dead of the winter, what do our resident songbirds feed on ? What plants provide winter food sources at a time of food scarcity? What kinds of trees do Mourning Doves select for nesting in early spring? When you choose a plant for your property are you considering its “ ecological function” and how it enhances wildlife habitat?
Come to Mr. Picone’s lecture and you will learn that you can make a difference for wildlife in your surroundings by the plants you choose to plant and their arrangement.

A life-long self-proclaimed “call and order flowers girl,” Shaw reached a turning point when her daughter got married. After working with the floral designer/event planner to create a beautiful wedding, she became enamored with the color, form, beauty and art that is a flower. She knew then that she had to learn more and soon began working for an esteemed floral designer in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. After a few years in the industry, yearning for a magazine(beyond trade publications) about her passion and unable to find anything, Shaw decided to start one.
In March 2007, flower made its debut in the southeastern market. As the first lifestyle magazine published in the United States for flower enthusiasts, novice and professional floral designers and gardeners everywhere, this seasonal publication features informative articles and beautiful photography to delight the senses. The publication’s mission is to “enrich life through the knowledge and beauty of flowers.”
