The Winnie Garden is a charming little garden, which is of special interest to children. All the plants have animal names that could be heard in the common farmyard. Winnie, the garden’s namesake, presides over the care of the plants and visitors herself. She is a large, graceful pig formed of found metal objects, created and donated by Anne Gibbons. She dances on a big metal ball and beckons to children of all ages to share her delight in this playful plant collection.
