No one needs an excuse to spend time at , the world-renowned pleasure garden right here in Wayne.
But it does not open until Saturday, March 31, so Radnor Patch asked to take some photos of the garden a few days before the opening.
Horticulturalists were fast and furiously readying the gardens for visitors. There are a few new items, including a still-in-progess bridge to a new woodland area that, when completed, will be quite a sight. But we won't spoil the surprise!
Chanticleer is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The garden is also open on Friday evenings until 8:00 p.m. from May through Labor Day. The 2012 season ends on November 4th.
