The next stop for Belfast Garden Club’s Open Garden Days is at the gardens of neighbors Colonel Manley Rogers and Sara and Arthur Hayes. Col. Rogers, who as a teen worked in his father’s gardens and at some commercial farms in Waterville, where he grew up, has rekindled the interest of his youth at his Belfast property where he has gardened since 1983. The Hayes Garden offers the manicured style of a formal flower garden at their stately brick Greek Revival home built in 1846, and designed by the same architect as the Rogers’ home. Arthur Hayes grew up in Belfast and experimented growing plants as a child.
