Secret Garden(s)

See just how beautifully spring has sprung at The Shipley School’s 37th Annual Secret Gardens Tour on May 11. Spend a (hopefully) sunny day on a self-guided tour through eight Main Line gardens (locations aren’t revealed until the day of the event). Past stops have included estates with exotic specimen collections, ponds and decorative sculptures. Enjoy a midday lunch at Appleford in Villanova, with food from Duffy’s Catering. And be sure to see the Shipley Green Thumb Shop and its new “Art from the Gardens” exhibit of paintings by local artists, all for sale. Visit
