Now it looks like an Alpine Village. I don't know if that's progress or not but it is a change.
And sometimes the changes are good ones. I have discovered the Demonstration Garden.
I had no idea this was there until I saw a sign for an art fair there. (I'm not sure I'd call it an art show, personally. It was about four booths, I think -- unless I missed something, but I looked pretty hard.). But the garden was delightful.
There is a maze (impossible to photograph unless you are above it!) and all sorts of pretty flowers.
I liked the hummingbird garden with a variety of flowers to attract plants.
Quite possibly, my favorite was the children's garden with their ABCs...
...colorful crayon markers...
...and a fun caterpillar.
This sun dial lets you stand on the month, put your arms straight up and the small stones in a semi-circle above it tell you the time. It works!
And I thought this was fun -- a washboard and bin to make some noise!
The raised beds and herbs were wonderful. There was even a grassy ground cover of thyme and yes, it smelled wonderful!
It's in a countryside area (well, not really, just seems that way) so you have some wonderful views.
I can't resist a trellis!
All the plants are well marked and the paths easy to walk on. There is also a greenhouse.
In all, a nice find! And it's fun to have something new to discover.
Who knows, maybe I'll take my watercolors there! Now that would be a first!
