The La Jolla Historical Society kicked off its Secret Garden Tour weekend with a party May 19 at a home in La Jolla’s Muirlands neighborhood.

The intimate gathering included hors d’oeuvres, wine and music from the Gand Band, featuring La Jolla residents and historic-home owners Joan and Gary Gand.

The Secret Garden Tour the next day offered two options: a self-guided tour of six gardens that could be viewed in any order, and a Platinum Tour that included a seventh garden plus transportation with a docent and lunch.

For the first time, both options sold out this year.
