From the Editor: What Winter?



william taufic

I was first introduced to the splendor of Susan Bevan’s gardens several years ago when she graciously opened her home to host the YWCA’s Spirit of Greenwich awards. It was an early autumn evening, and the backdrop of Long Island Sound paired with the manicured grounds made for the perfect setting to celebrate the philanthropic ladies being honored there. Though most of us would be reticent to host hundreds of guests in our homes, Susan and her husband, Tony Daddino, are known for their generosity when it comes to laying out the red carpet for benefits. Perhaps because, as Susan says, “It is a real gift to live here.” A gift that they readily share.

A long-standing member of Greenwich magazine’s advisory board, Susan has contributed countless story ideas—always an eager participant at our meetings. So it came as no surprise that when we approached her to ask about featuring her gardens in an upcoming issue, there was not so much as a pause. We think you are going to love taking a stroll through the grounds of this magnificent estate.

Also no stranger to grand gardens and estates, is acclaimed architect and landscape designer Dinyar Wadia. In this issue Dinyar talks about the European gardens that inspire his designs, offers tips for our own backyards and shares what he’s learned from his years on the job.

As we go to press, spring is indeed in the air. It’s an unseasonable eighty-some-odd degrees outside, and the storms that dumped foot upon foot of snow on us this past winter are about as welcome a memory as a root canal. The flip-flops, sundresses and T-shirts that we thought we’d never see the likes of again can now return to their rightful places at the front of the closet.

But such is life in the publishing world that we are already planning our 2014 landscape issue. If you have a special garden that we should know about, drop us a line at editor@greenwichmag.com. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re headed outside to kick off our shoes and give spring a formal welcome.
