Get Ready for Mrs. Greenthumbs Day

This summer will see the return of Mrs. Greenthumbs Day, an event honoring the memory of Hudson's most talented, most exuberant, and most famous gardener, Cassandra Danz, who had a local radio show, appeared on national television, and wrote books as Mrs. Greenthumbs.

As it has in the past, Mrs. Greenthumbs Day will be observed with an open garden day in Hudson. Eight gardens have already signed on for the tour, but there could be more. As Mrs. Greenthumbs used to say of flowers and gardens, "Less is not more. More is more." So consider opening the garden you love, work hard at, and take pride in to your fellow gardeners, gardener wannabes, and garden appreciators on Sunday, July 20. On that day, the gardens will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

If you want your garden to be a part of this very special event, just send an email to Gossips and let your intentions be known. Do so by Saturday, July 5, to allow enough time to get your garden on the map.

If you enjoy other people's gardens but don't have one of your own, mark your calendar. On Sunday, July 20, you will have the rare opportunity to view gardens in Hudson that are hidden behind buildings and fences and to get inside gardens that can only be longingly glimpsed from the street.
