New Canaan is rich with hidden treasures created by individuals with passion and creativity. These 2.7 acres of pure woodland bliss and spectacular display in spring is a gift left to us by George S. Lee who spent 40 years establishing this extraordinary refuge. The Lee Memorial Garden is a grateful tonic for the soul after the snows have melted and the winds subsided. After a day of real estate, or yet one more load of laundry, a stroll through the gardens relaxes my shoulders that have somehow managed to creep up to my ears. Do yourself a favor and leave your blackberry and your cell phone in the car. We all need time off from the world and dinner can wait.
