Come to Smith-Gilbert Gardens and be ready to be amazed…treecookies

Beautiful blooms are putting on a splendid color show. The roses smell refined and wonderful. Many shady spots to ponder and the koi love to see you around the ponds! Go through the red barn to walk between the tall sunflower stalks, the pizza garden, the three sisters garden and many other edible plants. Have fun with the tree cookies, dig in the soil and pick up a wand to make giant bubbles!

I can not explain, you will have to see for yourself.

Pete Pillar


Any age is having a great time with our picture scavenger hunt. Pete Pillar is our critter of the season. He has been crawling around and goofing off. Pete had his picture taken around the gardens and now it is your turn to find where that was.

Stop by at the Reception in the Hiram Butler house for your copy of the seasonally appropriate scavenger hunt.
