Image of Margaret Roach's gardenIf you are a fan of Martha Stewart Living magazine you might be interested to learn that editors Margaret Roach and Andrew Beckman will each be opening their gardens to the public as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program. Details and directions are on the Conservancy’s website.

This and other garden events for upstate New York are listed in the sidebar as I learn of them, and are also posted to a public Google calendar.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

All the gardens are in Dutchess or Columbia Counties. They will be open from 10am to 4pm on September 9th. The link that says “Conservancy’s website” is the one that will tell you this.
