The Art of the Vignette: A fun design presentation illustrating how to effectively use small spaces in the garden to convey a sense of drama and personal style and how to avoid common faux pas. Cheryl Monroe will teach us how to use color, design features and objects d’art to draw the eye and create fabulous vignettes that will have your visitors admiring your savior -faire.
Cheryl Monroe is one of the Seaside Garden Club’s favorite speakers. Her entertaining style and plant knowledge make her programs memorable. Cheryl is a self-taught gardener for 20 years, now a graduated Master Gardener specializing in clematis and garden design. Cheryl’s portfolio of program and workshops is impressive. A licensed adult educator, she follows the science, reading constantly and taking classes to stay current with the latest in plant research, new plant introductions and design trends.
Cheryl is a gardener who follows the motto “Pretty it up!” and strives to have beautiful pest free gardens on her 1 acre plot in central Massachusetts where she grows close to 100 clematis species and hybrids, dozens upon dozens of ornamental vines, hundreds upon hundreds of perennials , and a large variety of both deciduous and coniferous trees and shrubs. Be sure to check out Cheryl’s entertaining blog (Garden in the Burrow) for more information.
