Celebrate Connecticut’s Historic Gardens Day at Weir Farm National Historic Site, where gardens and art go hand-in-hand! Weir Farm National Historic Site, the only national park dedicated to American painting, is a member of Connecticut’s Historic Gardens–an organization committed to preserving and promoting historic gardens throughout Connecticut. On Sunday June 25, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, park staff and Garden Gang volunteers will offer short informal talks in the Sunken Garden and Secret Garden about each garden’s history, flowers, restoration, and ongoing preservation. In addition to the talks, visitors can spend an afternoon painting en plein air in a landscape that has inspired artists for over 130 years using the park’s free-to-use watercolor supplies! There is no registration for this event – just stop by and smell the flowers!
