Open Days! Gardens!

The Garden Conservancy’s Open Days DSCN4534in New York State had a day to remember today!  The flowering trees under blue skies!  Nothing better!  Duck Hill in North Salem was open all day today and the day could not have been finer!  Over the years I have had the pleasure of visiting this garden a few times and have been enchanted by every “room.”  As the garden changes and matures, it becomes more complex and its many layers fascinate.  The property sits high on a ridgeDSCN4537 and gives beautiful views of the countryside.  Walking through this garden, I am intrigued by rare plant material .  There is a joy that is translated in the placement of potsDSCN4538

that adorn favorite ornaments.  The feathered set is part of the charm.DSCN4552

They bring a smile as they appear at the end of  the slow walk through the woodland .  DSCN4544  If you missed today’s opening of Duck Hill, mark your calendar, and bookmark the Garden Conservancy, because you will have another chance in June to view this special place…as another layer unfolds!

  1. Not familiar with this garden. Looks like it is definitely worth the visit. Love the chicken statue (I have one too!) and the white trillium.

    What a nice garden. I checked the link – there are no Open Days in Texas until October. 😦

    What a lovely garden and such a blue sky to set it all off, your first photo is enchanting! Garden visiting is such fun and so inspirational, I love to visit whenever I can as I always come back inspired by something, a combination of plants or something like the beautiful Trillium you showed us, I’m sure it would like to live in my woodland.


  4. Oh Holly, that is a long time to wait. Judging from your garden photos there should be some garden tours in Spring too!!!
    Pauline, I agree about the trillium – it would enhance my wooded area too!


  5. I’m so glad garden bloggers share these garden tours. So inspiring!

    What a lovely garden and setting – I particularly like the wild feel of the first picture


  7. Thank you for sharing – always great to see a visitors take on the gardens that participate in the Open Days program. Hope you get to many this year!

    Hi Jayne, we’re looking forward to a season of visiting gardens with the NGS Open Gardens scheme. As everything is late this year with the (continuing) bad weather, it’ll be a few weeks before we start heading out an nosying around other peoples’ gardens.
