A Gardening Year

The adventures and misadventures of an heirloom gardener

It's Here!

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.

Gina, it was a lot of fun. Well worth all the effort everyone put into it.

Digital, thanks! Bear in mind that we have a different theme every year, so the gardens are completely different every year. so don't just come this year. Come every year!
