The other sites are: 

  • Nancy Cooper’s 2-acre garden on Joslin Lake featuring 800 daylilies, 300 hostas, and hundreds of other perennials and annuals. Scores of garden art pieces are scattered among the flowers. Chelsea high school musicians will entertain and Chelsea Artists Guild members will paint plein air.
  • Along the Fence Daylilies, a family-owned farm in Dansville with more than 2,400 cultivars. A free daylily will be given to the first 50 visitors to the farm.
