Gardens of Eden - Part II
The huge white oak trunk yields seats and arm rests in another area of the same display. Circular cut outs from smaller limbs provide stepping "stones" along the path. The tree had died several years ago, but the wood had dried out and was well preserved.
An oriental fountain was nestled amid stone and cypress in the combined Japanese and Chinese garden displays. We have a gift certificate for this company and will make a spring visit soon.
An upright slate slab wall begins the most creative use of mixed materials in the open face of this company's display.
A reclaimed barnwood tongue and groove structure morphs into part of the stone and brick walk through the path into further pleasures.
