There are a few garden events this weekend of note -- although don't plan on taking in all of them unless you have access to a private jet. One is an outdoor affair in the Hamptons; there's the Garden Festival at Hillsborough Castle Grounds near Dublin, Ireland; and the Maloof Foundation's 6th annual Sale in the Gardens in Alta Loma, California. The latter event features 26 local artists and includes pottery, garden art, painting, sculpture, jewelry and more. The event comes just a couple of weeks after the death of the property's' owner, world-reknowned woodworker and master craftsman Sam Maloof. The Sale in the Gardens is free and open to the public. The Maloof Historic Residence will be open 11 a.m.--1 p.m. for open house tours. For more information, call (909) 980-0412.
