www.fairchildgarden.org If the kindly volunteers who take your admission tickets see your picnic gear and suggest that you enjoy your repast on the tables near the Garden Café, smile and nod pleasantly. Then head straight for one of many secluded lakeside spots, far from the café, where you can spread a blanket and partake of a peaceful and leisurely picnic in a secluded, gorgeous setting. It's a mystery why Fairchild administrators don't actively promote this appealing aspect of a visit to the gardens. On the other hand, it's probably just as well they don't. This way it'll remain our little secret.
