Come see how an old tennis court was converted into five distinctive gardens.We are a Certified Wildlife Habitat home and an Official Monarch Butterfly Waystation.Our gardens: Italian, Drought-tolerant, Grassy Amphitheater, Tropical and Fruit Orchard are a relaxing place to visit and linger. You’ll meet numerous whimsical characters such as Bella Boulder Belly peering out from the canopy of the Tropical Garden and our working ants busy at labor in the Orchard.As you wander from front to back yard you will see over 350 trees and countless plants from many parts of the World. View our cycads from South Africa and Australia, Fishtail Palms from Thailand, and even a tomato tree from Ecuador.We have labeled a great many of our plants.We’ve had visits from a family of Cooper hawks, a juvenile short-eared owl, a barn owl that was heard but only its silhouette was seen, resident squirrels, lizards and multi-generations of phoebes, finches, doves, blue jays, and hummingbirds who make their home with us. We are also great believers in recycling. We catch rainwater in large trash barrels to water our gardens.The cement that surrounded our tennis court has become numerous planters and the asphalt from the court became a hill in the Tropical Garden. For a bit of whimsy, we used trees and limbs that were cut down to replant in the Janerwacky Garden in front.We invite you to take time to enjoy a Tic-Tac-Toe game on the log table with the bees and ladybugs.
