Linda Marrone and Susan Vandendriesse present the 16th annual Secret Garden Tour, themed “Ever-Changing Gardens,” on Saturday, May 17. Planned with the help of more than 50 volunteers, the event showcases several hand-tended La Jolla gardens, which “aren’t revealed to the public until the day of the tour, so it’s impossible for anyone to preview them, making this a much anticipated perennial La Jolla event,” says Marrone. The tour also features artists painting in the gardens, live music, and tabletop displays. A garden boutique on the grounds of Wisteria Cottage will be open to the public. Proceeds will help the La Jolla Historical Society maintain its extensive archives. (858.459.5335, www.lajollahistory.org)
