Kenneth Egawa—a friend I haven't seen in ages (at least since the late 1990's) but I am connected with on Facebook—recently posted some vacation photos, a Holland America Line Alaskan cruise. I've never had any interest in visiting Alaska, but one of his photos is definitely going in my inspiration file...
Isn't that fabulous!? Ken says the planters are trees that came down during a storm, the nursery (and a garden, see below) sunk them in the ground upside down and plants perennials on the root mass each year. Crazy cool right?!?
*UPDATE, commenter Elaine identified the location as Mendenhall Gardens in Juneau, Alaska. Thanks Elaine!*
