With the sun trying to peek out from behind the clouds today, my mind again floats to Spring! I am pretty sure I am more excited than usual this year to leave the rain and cold weather behind us!
Thinking of Spring naturally made me think of Cheekwood Art & Gardens. One of my favorite ways to welcome Spring is to visit the gardens. A quick check of the event calendar on the website revealed that the folks at Cheekwood must be looking forward to Spring too! There is something going on almost everyday the month of March, from activities for children, to the botanical showcase of Cheekwood in Bloom, to symphony and ballet performances at the garden. This is a great time to plan a visit to a Nashville landmark that has been around since the 1960’s. If you do not know the history of the gardens and Cheek family read it here. It is truly fascinating!
A well-known event that happens each Spring at the gardens is Highballs and Hydrangeas. The evening cocktail and arts event has been around since 2006 and it always sells out! Tickets are on sale now for the April 12 event, jump over there and get your tickets!
One more thing I just have to mention is Light, an outdoor art installation by acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro. His exhibitionw will be unique to Cheekwood and only his second show in the United States. The gardens will have extended hours during the exhibit on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening. The event runs May 24 – November 10 and I plan on going in May! I may have to see this one more than once. I am already counting the days! Read more about the artist and the light installation here.

Let’s hope the sunshine breaks away from the clouds today and sticks around!
