This Sunday, July 20, is Mrs. Greenthumbs Day in Hudson! It's a day to celebrate Mrs. Greenthumbs, Cassandra Danz, Hudson's most exuberant and most famous gardener, who "turned a boring yard into a glorious garden" and showed others how they could, too.
In celebration of Mrs. Greenthumbs Day, fourteen gardens in Hudson will be open to visitors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gardens are located all over the city--south side, north side, upstreet, and downstreet. So, on Sunday, put on your walking shoes, grab a hat to shade you from the negative effects of the sun, and prepare to be awed and inspired by some of Hudson's most glorious gardens.
Click here to download your own copy of the map and print it out, so that you will be prepared to chart your own course from garden to garden on Sunday. If you forget to print out your own map, you can pick one up on Sunday at The Secret Gardener, 250 Warren Street.
There is an added attraction in one of the gardens. In the lovely little shade garden behind Jeff Bailey Gallery, 127 Warren Street, sculpture by Allan Glatter is being exhibited.
Mrs. Greenthumbs Day is free, but there will be an opportunity at each garden to show your appreciation and help with the beautification of Hudson by making a contribution to a "Hedge Fund" to restore the boxwood hedges in the pocket park across the street from the Hudson Opera House.
