Tucked within but not a part of a condominium complex, this three-quarter acre garden features trellises, gazebos, fountains, a pond, a working full-sized waterwheel, and irrefutable horticultural bliss. This property was transformed from a 1930s-era working farm to a beautiful Colonial garden. As you walk along winding brick pathways, you will see more than 40 trees of various species and over 100 roses artfully arranged among numerous perennials and annuals. Many of the plants began life in the large vintage greenhouse. The beauty of several garden “rooms” is complemented by the sweeping views of southeastern Orange County from over the top of the long, white picket fence.
Kathie continues to ask, “Why should we be on the garden tour AGAIN? People have already visited it!” Ron answers, “Our garden is always changing” (as are all). And for once, Ron was right. In the Fall of 2015, the garden was hit by a fairly powerful storm when a “downspout” toppled two 70’ trees, part of a concrete wall, and trellises, giving Kathie a “blank canvas” in this now new part of the garden.
Editorial Note: Kathie, creative-type, planner, and doer, with the assistance of her “newly promoted” PhD (patient hole digger), “Ron” have created one of the most popular and botanically stunning gardens in all of O.C. themselves. This is a must-see!!!
