From The Archives: Garden Day in The Back Bay, May 22, 1965


The Garden Club of the Back Bay celebrated a Garden Day on May 22, 1965, and Boston Globe photographer Gilbert Friedberg took the picture below of Mrs. Dean Dieter (Elizabeth Marshall Dieter)  in her garden at 288 Commonwealth Avenue.  The trellis is woven with what is described as “silver fleece vines,”  which we believe are Polygonum aubertii. Thank you to member Kitty Winter for sharing her wonderful archive of photos with us.
