If you’ve never been to Bergeson Nursery during the summer, it’s probably something you should add to your bucket list. Located southeast of Fertile, Minn., the gardens are always open during daylight hours in the summer. They are the most beautiful from late July through early September, and during that time, printed garden guides are available then that allow you to take a self-guided tour. The nursery will be holding its annual open house Saturday (Aug. 11). There will be guided garden tours at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., live music by the Bergeson family at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., with free cookies, coffee and donuts. (Food and ice cream will also be for sale.) If you can’t make it, enjoy these images from photographer Eric Bergeson.
