Litchfield County Gardens and Christmas With Rich Pomerantz

Sometimes buying that very special person a gift is the hardest thing to do. Do you have an avid gardener on your Christmas list? Or maybe you are the gardener and know that no one is going to get you what you REALLY want.

What on earth do I get for that special gardener in my life in Litchfield County for Christmas?

Rich PomerantzWe have an app for that. No, just kidding, but Rich Pomerantz has the perfect gift! The Litchfield County Times wrote about Rich and his photography, suggesting that the perfect gift for the avid gardener in your life is the gift of the art of photography. Give them (or yourself) the ability to learn how to photograph their gardens, capture the beauty forever instead of for a fleeting moment. Of course you can always have Rich come and take the photos, after all he does an awesome job!

You can read the article about Rich here, Need a Unique Gift for a Gardener? How About Photos of Garden Glory? Or DIY Photo Skills?

Rich has been doing garden photography workshops for a long time, and he is very, very good at it. And his photography is spectacular, he is very gifted. You can check out his work at

I know the "other" Rich, the Realtor®. Rich is a member of "the team", SPA, Swiedler, Pomerantz & Adams. Certainly clients who list with us get the benefit of his photographic expertise as he takes takes pictures of our listings. They also benefit from his years of being a practicing real estate attorney.

Rich PomerantzI have a few of his books at my house, his works have been seen by millions in popular magazines, he has been around the world taking pictures, he offers workshops in his studio here in New Milford, at the New York Botanical Gardens and Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. To me he is just a really fantastic guy who is a pleasure to work with. I get the best of all worlds with Rich, an accomplished real estate attorney, an accomplished photographer, a fantastic business partner as a member of the SPA team, a real estate agent with a great deal of knowledge, and a really great guy! Liddy Adams and I were blessed when he joined us. (Plus he has a really good sense of humor and he knows how to milk cows!)

Think outside the box when looking for that perfect gift for the gardener in your life. Give Rich a call at 860.355.3356 or shoot him an email at

And of course, it goes without saying, if its real estate you have in mind in Southern Litchfield County, give us a call at 860.946.0686.

Good morning Andrea. Rich sounds like a truly amazing person. Photography is evocative of so much that is good and dear and your friend sounds like one to learn from. Enjoy the day.

Andrea, I don't have any avid gardeners on my list, but I do have hard to buy for people and I need to start racking the old gray matter to come up with something.

By the way are you going to be able to make it to the Meet-Up in Cromwell ??? :)
