Many people are familiar with the Sunken Garden at the Weir Farm National Historic Site, but how many have visited the Secret Garden? Both gardens will be the focus of attention on Sunday, June. 25, as part of Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day. From noon to 4, there will be a ranger or volunteer on hand to show off the gardens, identify plants, and answer questions. As it does every weekend it is open, the site will put out watercolor kits for those inspired by what they see.
To be a member of Connecticut Historic Gardens, sites must not only have a garden that is historically significant, but at least one historic house accessible to the public.
