The Sandy Spring Museum Garden Club invites you to immerse yourself in local flora, food and fine art by touring four fabulous local gardens. In the afternoon, celebrate with wine and hors d’oeuvres at a special fifth garden, located at a historic home, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

Grow your inspirations as you enjoy a variety of garden landscapes, including annuals and perennials, flowering trees and shrubs, water features and specimen trees. Plein Air artists will be at each location creating their garden paintings. Their works will be available for viewing and purchase at Wine in the Garden.


Garden One

Two artists designed their garden as a team, merging their talents to create a beautifully terraced garden. Each section is uniquely filled with different plantings of perennials and annuals, shrubs, grasses and a vegetable garden. Bringing extra charm, they created many different handmade sculptures and have other unique aesthetic objects throughout the grounds.

Garden Two

A three-acre paradise. This garden’s fabulous color combination in the English Style has an extensive collection of rare peonies, daylilies, and phlox. Enjoy a variety of shrubs, perennials, and trees. The simple arch covered with “Blushing Lucy” rose is a must see.

Garden Three

“Gardens Remembered” with paths that lead you to different shade and sun gardens. See if you can spot the garden art tucked in among the plantings. Let your whimsy wander as you take in the beauty of the water features and potted containers from around the world.

Garden Four

This enchanting historic home and farm date back to 1747. The woods on the property are said to be the home of fairies. As you tour the vast gardens of red poppies, magnificent specimen trees, as well as a remarkable collection of
sculptures, you’ll agree that this is truly a magical place.

Wine in the Garden

A beautifully restored 1837 manor home will greet visitors and invite exploration while enjoying Wine in the Garden.  The smokehouse boasts a newly renovated cottage garden and the foundation of the old stone barn is home to a beautiful pollinator and meditation garden.
