The big day has finally arrived. The 43rd Annual Open House at Rutgers Gardens.
My sunflowers have opened right on time.
Behind the garden gate, the veggies and herbs compete with the flowers of the Display Gardens for visitors' attention.
The hours and days of frantic preparation have paid off. The gardens are at their peak of perfection. All that is missing now are the crowds of admirers.
Later . . .
It was a perfect day. I'm exhausted from the heat and the crowds. But I also came home with a very special souvenir today. I can't wait to share it with you on Green Thumb Sunday.
