Winning ways with flowers

Jonathan Watkinson, Delaware '97M, says he was thinking of his grandmother's house in Kent when he designed the English cottage garden that took a first-place ribbon for the Friends of the UD Botanic Gardens at this year's Philadelphia Flower Show. Using a 12-foot-square space, the pathway was lined with purple and pink roses, delphiniums, lupines, forget-me-nots, hosta and hollyhock plus an herb garden. Other winning UD entries by University employees included a sunny Mexican garden, which took third place in the garden class for Kate Murray and Cathy Olsen, and a second place in the miniature settings category for Karen Gartley and Yvonne Sallade, Delaware '91, '96M
