Even on a stormy spring day and before the wildflower meadow at Ladew Topiary Gardens emerges, it’s alive with stunning flowers and wildlife.
Greg Otto, Kathy Hudson, and Penney Hubbard are teaming up in support of local businesses with a book, a calendar, cards and posters this holiday season.
Meet Kathy Hudson, Author of“On Walnut Hill: The Evolution of a Garden.” Kathy will be signing copies of “On Walnut Hill” from 11 am to 2 pmSaturday, December 5 at Sprezzatura.
Book launches rarely have related art exhibitions. On Walnut Hill: The Evolution of a Garden by Kathy Hudson, however, lends itself to one. The two-acre Ruxton garden, developed over 46 years by passionate gardeners A.C. and Penney Hubbard, looks like a piece of living sculpture and contains a collection of sculpture as well.
When A.C. and Penney Hubbard moved into their house in 1969, the garden was in rough shape, and the hills were mainly used for sledding. Fast forward 46 years, and their garden is now one of the most stunning private gardens in Maryland, and is listed on the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Gardens.
