garden open day and pot workshop: you coming?

I‘M FEELING ABOUT AS FADED AS MY PANSIES, above–and aren’t those the world’s most beautiful deadheads? But onward we march here, with these tours and classes up next: 

Sunday May 23 is Garden Conservancy Open Day from 10-4 (you can get details and directions at the Conservancy website, here). The $5 donation goes to their work to help preserve and promote gardens in America.

Then Saturday May 29th, 11-1, my friend Bob Hyland of Loomis Creek and I do an encore of our most popular workshop of 2009: “Contained Exuberance” (the art and how-to of container gardening). It’s $18, which includes a $5 nursery coupon good for your next visit. Email info@loomiscreek.com to register for that one–and don’t forget to leave Bob your phone number!

See you soon…heading back out to deadhead some more pansies! (Oh, and all of my 2010 events are listed on this page.)

    So sorry I can’t make it on Sunday – have to work, though I guess you do too! But last year’s visit is still strong in my memory and every click through your website is a wonderful reminder.

    I’ll be there Sunday Margaret and bringing a gardening friend. My husband wondered why I would go again since your open day is approximately the same time as last year. Silly guy! This year’s weather has guaranteed I’ll see a different garden. Here in New Hampshire my Spirea are in bloom… a whole month early. I bet it’s the same in your oasis. Will the old Rhodie still be in bloom? Oh… sigh… the Chioanthus… will I still be able to breathe in it’s sweetness. Whatever. I’m sure there will be other delights to enthrall. That’s why we garden.

    I wish I lived close enough to attend…but your blog is a great substitute. I have told many friends about it.

    Wish I could make it, but I have to tidy the garden so it looks presentable when guests come for my daughter’s bridal shower.

    Tomorrow my friend has voluteered to help me, now that’s a DEAR, BEST friend.

    Thank You for a beautiful morning tour of your garden. You patiently answered all of our questions as our eyes feasted on a garden of color and texture. Margaret, your love of gardening is contagious and I returned home inspired and renewed. I have been sharing your love of gardening since the Newsday years and I wish you great success in all of your newer ventures. We Love the Blog!!

    Sincerely, Gloria

      Welcome, Gloria, and thanks for visiting–and for your kind words. I will post something about the tours later; just slow getting organized today after a hectic few days. I look forward to seeing you again before long, and again, many thanks for your support.
