We are delighted to share a bit of Rose Marie Bogley’s story and her home, “Peace and Plenty” at Bollingbrook, with our readers this month. The cover photo was taken on the front porch of her lovely home, recently featured on the Historic Garden Week tour and the site of many special occasions over the years for the Middleburg and Hunt Country community. Photographer Joanne Maisano captured the cover image and the photos that you will find in the article, Time to Savor Peace and Plenty, later in this issue.
On this page is a photo taken by Janet Hitchen after Rose Marie won the Side Saddle Class competition at the Upperville Colt & Horse Show in 2007. Rose Marie competed in many equestrian events and bred horses at her farm until recently. ML
