We always enjoy going for a bite to eat, a stroll through the gardens and taking a look through the wonderful retail spaces.
I've taken photos on several occasions over the years, some gardens have come and gone - which is great, there is always something new to see there. I'll try to provide as much information about the garden designers as I can but I'm afraid some I didn't get the name on.
One of my favorite gardens is Garden Play by Topher Delaney. Definitely an apt name.
Nearby is Rise by Planet Horticulture with takes the award for best use of corrugated drainpipe ever.
We always enjoy The Children's Garden by MIG.
I love the plantings in Transcendence by Delmar McComb and Peter Hanson.
Scattered around are lots of sculptures, most of which I wish I could take home.
In the retail section sculptures/purchasable items abound as well.
Well, I'm running out of room so I think I'll post the rest of the gardens next time. More to come...
