Well, I've been trying my hardest to actually put together a post on my own garden this week, but events have conspired to keep me out of the garden as much as possible. Luckily, I have a ton of photos from the Fling, so these posts are almost half done!
This is the very first garden we visited on the first day of the Fling, it's the Matt Gil Sculpture garden, designed by Dan Carlson of Wigglestem Gardens.
The most interesting thing about this garden is actually its location. It's basically situated right next to and under a freeway...built into the (extremely) steep embankment.
This garden is not just about plants, however, it's also a showplace for various sculptures, produced by the owner.
As you descend steps into the garden proper, there is a wonderful feeling of enclosure.
One thing I found sadly missing from many of the gardens we toured were grasses (maybe many of them don't grow well without winter chill)? When I did spy one, I enjoyed it for all it was worth...here we have Stipa gigantea.
While on the viewing platform/deck, I hadn't even noticed this flying bone!
There were also a few succulents in containers.
We enjoyed some shade while admiring the view.
Agapanthus, I know!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of a very interesting garden, for our next stop in San Francisco, we'll take a look at the Organic Mechanics Garden!
