Letter: A beautiful garden experience

What’s up in the Aspen art scene and garden-landscaping world?

The answer is so very simple. Go check the Little Nell’s Poolside Living Floral Wall! Also, if it’s pointed out to you, you will discover there’s also the Grace Kelly Garden and other subset gardens poolside.

The eve of June 25, I met the well-mannered British damsel Arabella Beavers and was privileged to a personal tour of the Little Nell’s artistic, one-of-a-kind floral Eden sight delight.

As Arabella and I walked and talked about the Little Nell’s garden poolside extravaganza, we also entertained ourselves with royal discussion of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s annual tea party and birthday celebration.

What a most magical, flourishing time of synchronicity, artistic flowering, living Technicolor entertainment and high-culture charm and talk!

If you read not “Aspen Food & Wine Classic highlighted by seminars, tasting and parties” (Food & Dining, Denver Post, June 23), then here goes:

“‘The Little Nell News’

“During the Classic, the iconic Little Nell is a hub for VIPs and a venue for tastings, parties and events. … The update this year was outside with the first ‘living wall’ installation in Aspen.

“The brainchild of General Manager Simon Chen and built by Arabella Beavers of Busy Beavers Gardening, the 24-foot by 7-foot poolside structure was designed using petunia, coleus, lobelia and alyssum annuals to represent the mountains, sky, sunrise and sunset. Guests can also enjoy its beauty from element 47’s patio.”

Perhaps in the near future, Arabella and I will receive our invitations and attend both the British monarch’s annual tea party and birthday celebration.

One would suggest that the five-star-rated Little Nell Hotel and Aspen Skiing Co. daily place a crisp, new copy of this published letter in every room for guests to read and take home with them like Conrad Hilton’s fabled hotel policy of placing a free copy of his autobiography in every room for his hotel guests to take home to read.

Little Nell Hotel and Skico, you don’t need to bronze this letter — just reprint it on excellent, non-acid paper, and distribute it so your wealthy hotel guests can safely archive it in proper archival materials and archival boxes.

Great job, Arabella! Dynamite show!
