We had a big weekend with thousands of visitors taking advantage of the weather, the beauty of the grounds, and the envoromental activities in My Big Backyard. The Garden is always a special place but this time of year, it becomes even more special. The morning hours between 8:30 and 10:00 a.m are especially nice for walking around the 96 acres. The air is fresh, the weather is cool and pleasant, and the garden takes on a unique appeal at this time of day. I predict that if you ever visit us at this time, it will become a regular part of your schedule.
