What better thing to do to start the new year than to take a stroll through the garden at Gaiety Hollow?  We’ve had a very mild winter so far, but the last few days, including today (brrr) have been COLD.

Some frost on the bricks, selectively…

3600 people walked with us through this garden in 2015 on this blog, and we appreciate it.  We hope you’ll continue to join us in 2016 as things grow and change, we take on some new projects, and continue to work to make the garden at Gaiety Hollow thrive.
