After leaving the Baker Garden, I headed to the Beane Garden.
Ms. Beane has a HUGE water collection cistern:
She is also a fan of raised garden beds:
There is also a very large mosaic on the front of the house.
Heading around to the back yard...
There is a cute little metal peacock next to the grape vines
Obviously, cardboard is a good way to cut down on the weeds when starting a brand new garden, and the t-posts with 4" panelling makes for an easy trellis.
Along the back of the house, the shell ginger was blooming beautifully.
And a closer shot
When I turned around, I noticed both the cruiser bike against the fence and the tag for the grapes - a very cool idea, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up against the elements...of course, it may have just been there for the tour-goers' benefit.
