Art in the Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour and Market, June 15

Thursday, May 23, 2019

Anneke Wilder in the garden last year.

There are so many things that make the Secret Gardens of Lake Forest Park Garden Tour and Market worth the visit to the gardens.

Of course, the gardens are extraordinary.

Visitors can see how gardeners use shade plants, perennial gardens and natural slopes of our area to the best advantage.

And, to enhance your experience in the gardens there will be artists working on oils, and watercolors.

Anneke Wilder is a natural science illustrator.

If you visited the gardens last year you may recall her work. She engaged visitors, especially children while she drew.
