Frances Palmer's Garden

Weston, CT

Adjacent to Frances Palmer's pottery studio is her large cutting garden, which supplies myriad blooms from early spring through frost. Frances grows "Alice in Wonderland flowers." They inspire her ceramics and photography. Her garden is especially known for its dahlias; she plants more than 100 different shapes-from the smallest "pom" to the largest dinner plate varieties. Colors and textures abound, dahlias interweave with tomatoes, zinnias, amaranth, sunflowers, and herbs. September is the height of the garden's abundance.  Please note: there are three active bee hives on the property.

The pottery studio is not open during the Open Day.
