It’s summer and gardens around town are growing and blooming! The Hudson Garden Club, like other clubs and organizations, hasn’t been meeting, and the fun of working together during the annual Hudson Home & Garden Tour was cancelled. So, the Garden Club came up with a way to share the beauty of their gardens at this peak time of year.

The Garden Conservancy in America has promoted annual Open Garden Days since 1995, fueling America’s passion for gardens. Borrowing this idea, the Hudson Garden Club has been presenting a unique garden to club members for a few hours each week. Social distancing and fresh air and sunshine have helped make the most of these events that started in June and will continue into August.

As one who has opened her garden said, "We all put a lot of work into our gardens. It’s nice for others to see them!"

The Open Garden Walks have included special learning opportunities about trees, shrubs, and plants suited to this area, including native species. In addition, information has been shared about the roles that perennials, tropicals, vines and annuals play in the beauty of a garden.

The Open Garden Walks are for members only, but membership can be handled quickly on line at https://hudsongardenclub.org/ Visit a new garden each Sunday, enjoy the differences between them, and be inspired!
