It was December 21st and I was zipping down the avenue—on my way to the Huntington Gardens—as I caught a glimpse of something strange. I pulled over to get a closer look.
This is one of those extra wide hellstrips, and that's a lot of time spent arranging cement pieces.
The spiral circle installation was only the beginning however...
The second section...
And the third...
The fourth section had so much going on that I had to take individual photos of each part of the whole.
Flower D, that's my favorite container by the way.
And last, but not least, Butterfly B.
Here's the only view I found into the back garden, yes that's a little putting green.
I have to admit that my quick glance from the car had me thinking this would be another "WWTT" post (what were they thinking). But the more I walked along the sidewalk and took it all in, the more I was impressed with the individual vision that went into creating this street-side garden/work of art. It's certainly not what I would do if I had this much planting space in San Marino, CA, but hey, so what! If it makes them happy...
Another look as I head back to the car...
There were two personalized sections in the sidewalk...
I wonder who Levi and Leah are? The owners? Kids? Grand-kids?
I only took this one wide shot of the front garden. Leaf-drop was covering most everything, and yes, that is a horse swing made from a tire...
