Garden Visit: Potter/Lebe Garden

Contributed by Rebecca Glembocki

Open recently as part of the Garden Conservancy Open Days program, I had a fun experience volunteering to greet garden visitors at the garden of Jack Potter and David Glebe in Ghent, NY.. It was a pleasure to meet Jack and David, who had a steady group of visitors throughout the day. Their garden is so full of color, it was perfect timing for an Open Days visit. The area around Hawthorne Valley is beautiful and I highly recommend going to Open Days gardens in Columbia County! Also visit David and Jack’s garden blog: http://jackanddavidsgarden.blogspot.com/
