A California appropriate 'English' border with all drought resistant plants that tolerate hot climates. All plants attract and support many insects and birds. It was a place of life and fragrance- Kate's favorite garden ever. It was in hopland, Ca and is no longer there.
Kate has created many creative, colorful and dynamic gardens over the past 2o years. All of them reflect her concern with the environment, love of nature and life. She seeks to engage people with the vitality expressed in each garden- to leave them with an experience that will stay with them, and to inspire them with color, spontaneity and nature. The photos below are from the former Fetzer garden in Hopland, California as well as others in Northern California.
