Welcome to our new blog!

Please join us for a behind-the-scenes peek at fourteen of Connecticut’s most treasured historic gardens.

Here we’ll unearth details about each garden’s heritage and design, discuss plants and dig up gardening lore, and investigate all sorts of historic garden accessories — from arbors and fences to stone walls and sun-dials — many of which contain stories you may not have known!

If you have comments, questions, or historical facts you’d like to contribute, please contact Eve, blog writer & administrator, at jenevieve.hughes@yahoo.com.
Happy reading!
