connecticut_hartford_bloomsThe 20th anniversary “Hartford Blooms” Garden Tour takes place June 21 through 29, 2014, in Hartford, Connecticut.

This nine-day showcase of the city’s gardens and historic architecture includes daily self-guided tours of both public and private gardens.

The opening weekend will feature tours of the Elizabeth Park Rose Garden, known for its two and one-half acre garden featuring more than 800 varieties of roses. From there, it’s on to the Hartford Public Library, where speakers will set the tone for the walking tours scheduled over the following week.

The tours will include a series of private and public gardens within a particular neighborhood, a visit to a historic site, and the opportunity to sample some of Hartford’s eateries. The tours will conclude with a complimentary reception at Hartford’s Butler-McCook House and Garden, where Road Trips Gardeners can visit the iconic homestead, enjoy refreshments, and experience live music and “en plein air” artists at work.

Each $10 tour book admits the bearer to all activities, lectures and tours over the nine days.
