Each autumn, Hills and Dales Estate, in partnership with LSPA, hosts Stories in the Garden, a free storytelling event beneath the canopy of the pecan grove. This will mark the event's 9th year and will feature regional storyteller Norton Dill, as well as local tellers. Dill, a member of the eclectic performance group, The Dill Pickers, values taking a break from the technology that consumes our lives to participate in the time honored tradition of sharing stories and enjoying the relationships that result from this pastime. A family-friendly blend of stories, poems, and music will begin at 2:00pm and last until 4:00pm, with light refreshments provided. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for their socially-distanced comfort. In case of rain, the event will be postponed until Sunday, October 18 at 2pm.
