Gardens of Eden - Part III
The same display opens to an interior seating area of rectangular cubes of bound tree limbs and a corner slate seat. The table is also constructed of pieces of slate cut and joined.
Alfred State is represented with a wonderful cactus-based garden in sand and "old west" relics. The red rock slabs in the background add authenticity to the overall scene.
Another clever display featured dinosaur skeletons and digging tools amid rocks and growing tropicals.
A waterfall of a cascading 7-foot drop added variety to this jungle scene. There was real force to the water and the splash at the pool was noisy and kept the water plants well covered and moist.
