“Dog Days of Winter”

January 11-April 12, Public hours

The “dog days of summer” means hot, humid, outdoor weather, but our fanciful opposite – the Dog Days of Winter – provides a fun time to visit indoors, in spite of the weather. This garden of make-believe invites young visitors to imagine what it would be like to own a dog – or be one! A variety of topiary breeds occupy the garden beds, but the Dog Park Agility Course is a playground for doggie-wannabes. Choose your favorite breed at the Dog Show, try on different sizes of Dog Housing to see which fits you best, and practice howling at the moon. You can learn a bit about pet care at the Doggie Doctor and take a simple quiz to find out which breed you are most like. Featuring lush tropicals, winter-bloomers, and later on, early spring-flowering bulbs, the Dog Days of Winter will bring welcome relief from the chill of the season. Sponsored by Majic 95.1.
