Lush and a bit “wild”, this garden reflects the owner’s desire to create a woodland space which evokes feelings of tranquility and invites moments of meditation. Surrounded by trees, ferns and colorful flower accents, the visitor enters with a sense of anticipation and encounters many charming surprises. Here, a hidden waterfall and there, the glimpse of a forest fairy!
Incorporated within the environment are many antique farm implements, passed down from the days when Lamb Family members were among Orange County’s early pioneers. These rusting relics from the past are tucked lovingly among the flowers, vines and foliage.
Several plants are also “antiques” and were originally gift-cuttings from the owner’s mother and grandmother. These bits of family heritage now thrive in this idyllic setting, more than 50 years after they were planted! A magical gathering place, where many family celebrations, weddings, alfresco suppers, and tea parties have been shared, this garden is filled with memories and a sense of timeless natural beauty.
n Garden is not really geared for wheelchair access, but also not impossible for a wheelchair, with a bit of help from another person! ;0 ]
There is one step up from the driveway to enter the front yard and there are uneven flagstone steps along the side of the house, which lead to the rear garden area.
I plan to have my front door open for all the guests/visitors anyway,…and I would be willing to help a wheelchair-bound person through the house, which would allow access to the back yard.
