This place has great bones. Great hardscaping. Thoughtful structure. The perfect paths. You know what I am talking about – ones lead you throughout the entire space without maps and without much wondering. Just meandering and enjoying. Except when two paths meet and you must make a choice between a path sporting a handmade glass sign that reads “usual fruits” and another that leads to what seems to be life-sized giraffe sculptures lurking in the shrubbery.
From the moment you pull in, there is serenity. And bunnies scamping. And turtles splashing back into the small pond. And surprises. And sculptures. And plants that make you turn back and look harder at the planting. Is that??! Oh…it is! And folks who’ve loved and invested in this place over the years.
