The popular Troy Hidden Garden Tour returns May 25. And tickets are now available online -- they're $10.

This is the 18th year for the tour. Blurbage:

The self-guided walking tour features approx. 30 private backyard gardens in the Historic Sage College, Washington Park and adjoining neighborhoods of downtown Troy.
While most of the gardens are approximately the same size, about 20 feet by 30 feet, they vary greatly in style. Some of the gardens feature charming pathways, fountains and pools. Some are filled with flowers, while others have more plants and vegetables -- all lovingly tended by gardeners of all skill levels.

The rain-or-shine event is Thursday, May 25 from 4-7:30 pm. The check-in table is in the Russell Sage College Parking lot and the gardens are within walking distance of there.

At check-in this year, you'll also get a list of discounts and special offers from downtown Troy businesses. There will also be free refreshments at Carmen's Cafe from 4-6 pm.

And that evening there's a prix fixe dinner menu at Carmen's that will benefit The Friends of Prospect Park.

Albany House and Garden Tour
A similar event in Albany -- the annual Historic Albany House and Garden Tour -- returns Thursday, June 22.

What a wonderful way to meet people or hook up with old friends! You get to amble through the backyards of 19th century mansions and imagine you are back in 1885. It's like half the world walks with you, and you chat with them as you visit garden after garden. I've made new friends every year.

Hidden Garden Tour always seems like the start of the summer social season. It puts me in that easy, go with the flow summery feeling. Troy is such a friendly town!
