Saturday, amid the raindrops we had a spectacular experience at the Christopher (of Pampered Chef fame) farm and gardens, just north of Sheboygan, WI, along Lake Michigan. More than 50 acres of the 400 plus farm are devoted to gardens, including a Japanese garden, koi ponds, a fishing pond, par two golf hole, a long arbor of grape vines, and its own railroad complete with crossing, tunnel and station! Plants are largely those that flourish in our area and this lovely property is beautiful in every season. Generally it is not open to the public, but the Christophers invited the public for this special garden walk day. What a treat!
