Secrets from the Garden

Chandor Gardens Newsletter - May 2018

It's a glorious start to the month of May here at the Gardens! Roses, Wisteria, and Peonies are blooming, birds are singing, and the mild temperatures have prolonged our Spring season making it the perfect time to visit.

Mother's Day weekend begins with an elegant Duchess of Pearls Trunk Show on Friday May 11th and Saturday May 12th, followed by a Mother's Day Lunch in the Gardens on Sunday the 13th. All the details for these events can be found in this month's Newsletter.

The Chandor Gardens Foundation is also hosting their first ever "PapaPalooza" on Father's Day, June 17th. This event will be held at Heritage Park Amphitheater and includes loads of fun activities for Dads and kids of all ages.

If you haven't been to the Gardens in a while, what are you waiting for?? Come on out and see us before the Texas Summer heat sets in.

Keep up with us on Facebook and we’ll keep you posted there too.

See you in the Garden,
The Chandor Gardens Staff
