Each garden is designed around a different theme, with something of interest to just about everyone. With such a wide variety of plants and flowers, blooms can be expected throughout the Garden's open season. A special treat: in August, hundreds of Hummingbirds are attracted to Leaming's Run by the colorful flowers. Such a concentration of these delicate birds is certainly a rare phenomenon.
