I WAS HONORED (AND A LITTLE STARTLED!) to see myself on top of the front page of the Garden Conservancy’s April newsletter–where they wrote about our history together and my plans for expanded open houses here in the garden this year.
I’ve been open as part of their Open Days scheme for 15 years (hard to believe) and even before all that am proud to have introduced the Conservancy to what has become a signature project, the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden (which was part of my “beat” when I was garden editor of “Newsday” on Long Island). Later I visited and covered many of their other projects in the pages of “Newsday” and then “Martha Stewart Living.” Read all about it–along with details of extra goodies like plant sales and guest lectures at this year’s open garden days at my place.
And join me in saying a giant thank you to the Conservancy for all they have done for American gardens and gardeners.
