my walks on the wild side: local beauty
SOMETIMES I DO LEAVE THE HOUSE, even when the garden’s asleep and the mowing’s done. Friday and again Sunday, it was a nearby waterfall; yesterday a former dairy-farm field turned into parkland (both are in the top photo collage; see them bigger on the jump page). I’m wandering farther afield in my walks. Why do I mention this? So you can see some of the places you might visit visit if you come to the garden next spring or summer during a Garden Conservancy Open Day.
I’ve started to compile the 2013 events calendar…and it includes lots of book-related events, too (no walking involved in those!). Lots more workshops and details to be added, but it’s a start…more events, and more walks, to come.
To places like Bash Bish Falls, technically in Massachusetts, but a very short way up the road from my house (below), and Roeliff-Jansen Park on the Hillsdale-Copake, New York, border (above). I’ll take my real camera along sometime–these were taken impromptu by me and my friend Jay with our phones.
