We’re on a winning streak! After receiving the news last week of our two Silver Achievement Awards from the Garden Writers Association for photography, our confidence that our garden writing is equally deserving of accolade was confirmed. Contributing writer Carol Stocker won the GWA’s Silver Achievement award in the magazine category for her fascinating story Fantasy & Folly, which ran in Design New England’s September/October 2012 issue. The piece is about Rhode Island garden designer Louis Raymond and his bold landscape work, which involved a berry folly and glass sculptures glowing with gasses, for a couple’s vacation cottage in Connecticut. Stocker begins the article with “Call it a win win win.” Turns out, GWA agrees.
